Stitching in my Garden - Time Goes By


I have just been lazily stitching in my garden and…
with out even trying, I have stitched four blocks in My Quilt!


The blocks will all be pink flowers with off white solid fabric.  But the pink flowers are not all the same.  It makes it more fun to stitch.

 I am not sure if some of the pink flowers might be too pale.  We'll see.

I am using a ruler that has 1/4" on either side of the center line.  So I can line up the edge of the fabric with the center line on the ruler and draw the seam line.  That's the only way I could ever sew a perfect 1/4" seam!! By hand, anyway.

Click to enlarge and spy the Bumble Bee.

I snapped the photo of the blocks with great courage!
The bees were all a buzzing collecting pollen from my flowers.

Bees are amazing!

Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.
Job 37:14

Jeannie, that's going to be so pretty when you get it done. Any ideas yet for the binding?

No idea! Maybe a hue from the darker pink? I am not quilt-sighted enough to make those choices before I finish the quilt.
