Today DD # 2 and I had our second basting party of blue hexies for the flower garden quilt. I think it looks fabulous! Here is DD # 2 working on it the other day.
And here is her progress to date.
Pretty impressive for a first time quilter, no?
But she is asking me about finishing and I don’t have the faintest idea….other than a few things I’ve seen on other people’s blogs.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a good book, web site or blog on different ways to back, quilt and bind a hexagon flower garden quilt?
Wild flowers are coming fast and furious now. There are quite a few purples at the beginning of the summer. I have the Pasque flower, commonly called a crocus here, in my blog header. It is the first harbinger of spring. (Spring is short here – maybe a month long over May, then we launch into summer.)
Here are the other purples that follow behind the crocus.
Jacob’s Ladder (my book calls it Beautiful Jacob’s Ladder) a member of the Phlox family.
Then there are the Lupines (officially called Arctic Lupine).
There are great stretches of them in some spots….as you can see the dandelions are also prolific this year.
The Lungwort, or Bluebell, is not common. You won’t see big patches of them that often, but they are so beautiful when they do appear.
The flowers will continue to appear….and then disappear again before we know it. If only my garden bloomed as quickly!
