Around the Block

The last of the poppies
The last Autumn flush roses
The beautiful red gladioli that is as tall as me - I have 3 spikes
. . . and I wish I could say I made this quilt, I LOVE it! It was one of our craft girls who did
This one however, is part of the Around The Block that I was in last year. I asked for all circles of many different colours. It was hard to put together so after much deliberation and consultation with others, I have decided to make a cool colour quilt and a warm colour quilt.
This is my cool one so far.
These 2 quilts were finished, and hung in my sewing room in the holidays - the one on the chair is waiting to be bound. Waiting for some fabric that is being ordered.
. . . and a go at one of Nikki's little lavendar bags - fun to make, I think I'll try another
PUMPKINS from my garden - time to tidy up the vegies. I found lots of treasures in there.
I can feel some Pumpkin soup coming on!

Gladiolas are some of my favorite. Especially since the Hummingbirds seem to love them. Your quilts are stunning.

Such a cutie, your beautiful red poppy (I've just discovered the first one blooming here!). And whilst you can already harvest your pumpkins (mmmh I love its soup), I only plant them in my Spring garden now. The quilts you show are beautiful as well as the funny little bag!
