Stalled


Today I got the blocks all sewn together (hopefully no mistakes that will show up now when I post this picture) but I'm stalled because I have enough gold to go only half way around the quilt. I really like it so far. It looks much more delicate than anything I have ever done. Once I get the gold fabric it will take no time at all to add the borders. The next thing will be to decide how to quilt it.


We went for a walk today and found these flowers, I think they are Bottle Gentian, that appear in only one spot on our property every fall. They are a beautiful blue and it's well worth the walk to see them.

There aren't very many really pretty blue wild flowers that I have found. I really like the shade of blue in those.

I like the pattern of your quilt too. I like anything that makes the chain on the diagonal and the stars are a nice break from the chunckier ones.

There's just something about blue and green, especially that sort of blue.

The quilt is wonderful.
