Rainbow Scrappy Saturday--RED

Saturday, September 10, 2016
This week I made ONE Three Steps Forward block--


Please see everyone's RED posts at SoScrappy

Earlier this summer I bought Dahlia tubers on clearance.  They are starting to bloom--


I wasn't sure they would bloom, it was pretty late when I planted them--


The petals make me think pretty seaweed!  These morning glories were planted very late also--



The white outline on the purple flowers is striking.

Its a busy volunteer schedule, not sure when I'll get to sew.

Love your block! It looks great in red. And I'm jealous of the morning glories. They're so pretty.

I love your block - such an interesting pattern, and so crisp in red and white. MAri is jealous of your morning glories, and I am jealous of your dahlias! Your fall garden must be quite beautiful.

Nicely done red block. The dahlias are lovely. I have on friend who got a late start from seed and is holding his breath for blooms on zinnias. Another gal has morning glories as a screen up to her deck railings and lots of blues at the top. I do miss gardening, only have a couple of pots, impatiens and coleus, both doing well. Good luck with your projects and flowers.

Red and white is always a great colour combo. Love your pretty flowers.
