I love the brown scrappy border. It'll be a while before I get it quilted, but our little peach bush (yes, it is just a bush - the tree died, but it is coming up in another spot ) is in bloom and I wanted to catch a photo of it before the winds strip it of it's pretty flowers:
The wasps were out in full force
I also made all 168 HSTs for Sequoia and trimmed them up
Making a copy of the photo in the book was incredibly helpful in keeping things in order and it kept me from turning blocks around. I didn't have to bring the stitch ripper out even one time with this method:
As I pieced the blocks into rows
and then into a top
I am looking for something for the back.
I also needed a baby quilt and bought this fabric (the dot is from my stash) when I made my trip to Texas a few weeks ago:
This pattern, called Petal Power, caught my eye
It didn't take long to piece the blocks
I hope to get it to Jackie today, but I neglected to get a shot of the full top before heading out this morning.
And the binding on this little quilt ought to be finished this week
