Next I will have to decide on the binding.
I really don't want to spend money so I will have to dig out something from my collection of leftovers.
Red, yellow, grey,...
I may have some rainbow bias left over.
I also took the flower quilt up to the sauna in the upstairs apartment and pin-basted it after piecing the batting.
I was thinking of thread basting it but that would take several more hours and I need to go to get dog food before the rest of my Tuesday schedule hits the fan.
As it is, there is construction going on in my neighborhood and if I take the car as usual, I will need to drag the heavy bag back from the parking area because there is no room for cars to pass to get to my house ... so, I will take the train and a roller-bag as the walking distance is about the same.
I am enjoying these volunteers blooming along the base of my garden wall.
These come up from bulbs and do not produce seeds. The flowers last a few days.
You can see the seed pods with three pockets of ripening seeds.
These both begin blooming toward the end of summer and thrive on neglect ... my favorite kind of garden flower.
Maybe some member of the lily family?
Guess I should take some time to go through all my plant books. After all, I have enough of them!
Hoping now for a few cooler days so I can get that quilt in the hoop and begin to quilt that fabric garden.
