Sunday Stash Report

Sunday, July 20, 2008

This week I didn't buy anything, nor have I finished anything.  Drat!  Pulled out some blocks I won in the block lottery and put them together with some hourglass blocks, still deciding on the border.  Maybe some more of the blue/teal I used in the hourglass blocks would pull it together. A bit of a breeze today so getting a good picture was HARD!

I am still working on the baby blanket, maybe I can get that top to the borders yet this weekend. And I am determined to get the tossed salad top quilted, I have to piece in a little section of batting today.

My little garden is producing green zucchini and yellow summer squash, I have been busy working with that. And there are so many green tomatoes on the plants, I can hardly wait for them to ripen!!

And flowers, how I love summer!! My Malva is determined to bloom thru my deck steps.

My "dead" trumpet vine from this spring is blooming.

I just love these pansies!

That's a fabulous quilt! I love the way it looks like it was pieced on the diagonal!

No new fabric in...that's great! and you are so close to finishes...only a matter of days before you will have a few finishes to report!

Super quilt, I love it.

A big, big thank you for telling me what my mystery plant is, I am ever so grateful. Must go and pull it out!!!

What a darling quilt, very simular to the one I need to do for a State Quilt challenge...I love malva - it grows almost anywhere :)

What a colorful back yard!

And I do love that quilt. I think you're right, the blue will be perfect for the border.

The chunky churndashes look great with those blue hourglasses. More teal might look good or maybe a sawtooth border in teal and white?

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. No disrespect to South Dakota was intended (well, maybe a little!) I love how you set goals each week. I think that would help me!. Glad you left a comment so I could find you.

What a pretty quilt, Lori; and your flowers are gorgeous, especially the trumpet vine. You really have a green thumb. Thanks so much for your email about my Amy, it helped alot.

Hi Lori,
Just catching up ...
You dropped by Spiral last week and suggested I come over and look at your lotto blocks. Meanwhile, mine have just been 'resting' on the guest room bed. So I'm looking at mine again today, and thought I'd better get over here and see yours :)
Very nice with the hourglasses! I'm kind of leaning toward a colorwash plaid for mine. We'll see how that goes.
