Flowers

This week I've gone back to sewing the baskets of flowers. Two small baskets for the sides and three more for along the bottom. It's getting there. I pinned up the inner border fabric to see just how it all looked together and I like how it is coming together.


 
The other flowers are in the garden, with a lovely sunny morning but cold, I love how bright the yellow is in the rather wintry garden.

 
and  another splash of yellow is the overladen lemon tree. The netting behind is there to keep the possums out of the veggie garden.

Your work is lovely.

Dorothy, I agree - that border fabric is perfect! Those baskets are charming.
Your winter must not be real cold yet if you still have flowers blooming and veggies growing. Or are your winters normally pretty mild?

Great baskets and loving that Jo Morton toile bird print really sets them off.

I grew up in southern California but haven't lived there for years. The only thing I really miss is my old lemon tree! It freezes here so they only grow in green houses.

I love your flower blocks. As similar as they all are, they're also all different. Nice!

Your basket blocks are coming along beautifully and I love how they blend with that great border fabric.

The lemon tree is very cool. I wish I could grow that in my climate.

You have daffodils in flower already!!!

Karen said...

I see that your basket block fabrics are inspired by that first big border fabric. What a nice print to work with.

P.S. Your Mary Manakee quilt makes me want to make one every time I see it.
