A few weeks ago, I was happily surprised to receive this photo from Celine in FL, showing her finished State Flower quilt. Isn't this sweet? I love it so much! She said it was a wonderful project to work on while watching her son play baseball. These flower blocks are a nice size for take-and-go stitching. (I can't even count all the projects I have worked on during kid's ballet classes, music lessons, and what-not--waiting for appointments and such.) This quilt was actually a gift for her son's teacher; for her "little enchanted cottage in Maine". By not adding any lattice strips or alternating squares, the quilt is small and perfect for hanging up. Which I love. In fact, I might even copy this idea, because I have the perfect wall that needs a quilt exactly like this on it. Four 'corner stones' were added to make even rows (6 x 9). My own summer stitching is progressing pretty slowly right now. However, I do have one more block finished for the state of Georgia that I'll be posting soon. On another note, thanks for all the garden love--it's just one of the many things that are keeping us busy!
