WILD GARDEN

 
I have been collecting all the
"flowery" strings from making
my granddaughters'
(3 of them) quilts 
and 
started this spider web quilt...

Ummmm... 

{I thought I was straightening
out all my flowered strings 
but instead
this happened;))) }
↧↧↧↧

Pinks, purples yellows, and greens
with pink centers...
AND SO
💗
"Wild Garden" 
was born
;)))
****************************
I began pinning it up on my wall
yesterday
↡↡↡↡
I do love to see these flowery
webs appear like
magic...

It is a very "wild" space with flamingoes,
and
hidden kitties, 
and a few bluebirds
flying by...

I really enjoy this kind of 
semi-scrappy sewing...

******************************
For those of you who have asked
My recurrent cold is a bit better
today..
**************************
Saturday's supper 
will be:
leftover pot roast, 
potatoes with 
gravy and
a string bean salad...

Stay safe and warm 
during these cold Wintery days
Hugs,
Julierose, La Blageuse

  3. Oh, that is neat, Julierose! I love that design, too. Are you using a template for those blocks or pieces them on paper?

  5. Oh, I absolutely LOVE the solid purple/lavender in your string quilt! And what a great idea for the string scraps from your granddaughters' quilts. One of my favorite things about scrap quilts is finding the hidden "pictures".

  6. This is gorgeous! So fun with those fun little bits hanging out to see. Hope you are feeling better. Dinner sounds yummy. We had leftover chops and I'm making a pot of barley to go with dinner.

  8. Ah, the proverbial 'use it up' project that seems to create yet more to still have to use up. Sez I, who simply HAD to order more yarn for my mile-a-minute afghan that was totally intended to 'use it up'. After I get the new yarns my stash will be bigger than ever. Sigh.
