A Quilt And A Rose

I love making quilts. I am passionate about making quilts. Sometimes I get consumed with making quilts! This is my latest quilt. A friend asked me to make it for her and gave me carte blanche to do whatever I wanted. I love taking all kinds of bright colorful fabrics and putting them together. I especially like to combine fabrics that don't match and see what happens. The more different patterns I can find, the better.

The knockout roses have started to bloom so I picked on just for you this morning. If you lived nearby I'd deliver to you personally, but you'll have to settle for a virtual rose. Next time I'll show you what else is blooming in my garden.

The forecast is for a beautiful weekend here. Hope the sun shines where you are this weekend.

    When I opened my blinds this morning I noticed my first knockout rose in bloom and just had to cut it and bring it in.

    Have a great weekend.
