Being in Germany has been very relaxing once I got over the dang jet lag. I have been continuing on stitching my hexes. Here is the group I have finished while here. Enjoy the flowers growing here at my brothers place in Hornbock.

Nature and a quilting

More pictures from the grounds. There is always something blooming.

I quilted this top and am tickled how good it came out. The binding is made and sewn on. As this is a gift for a friend I am going to hand stitch the binding on the back.

More Tulips and MAM Blocks

I have been steadily making my tulip blocks.  I do know that there are a few with leaf petals turned the wrong way.  I think they will,stay like that.  They are good for me now and in between I make MAM mile a minute scrap blocks.  This drawer is so full, I think it is time to make some quilts with these blocks.  I know there is a king size I am making for son and DIL.  That was supposed to be for Christmas last year, oops.  I like having blocks available for when I need a quick quilt.

In one of my scrap bags there was some light blue ticking/upholstery fabric.  I wrapped my first wool mat and it looks so much better.  I also wrapped the new one I bought so it wouldn't get nasty.  Has anyone tried to wash them?

Hexies and more

The weather here in North Carolina has been beautiful and better now that the temperatures are lower. I have my house open and fans running.  The kitties sure do like it.  I had screens installed in the main area and it's a constant battle to see who gets by the screen door.

I have started a new hexi project.  So far so good.

I have started a tulip garden.  Yes I know one block has a lead turned the wrong way.

Speaking of beautiful my yard is fabulous with something blooming all the time.
