Thanks to Terri for her wonderful longarming, my Florabunda,
block of the month variation is done. I was so excited getting it back the other night that I did the binding right away. Unfortunately in my zeal, I forgot the faucet in the kitchen sink was running. Forty minutes later..TBTG down the other sink... went all the hot water...and my brain.
I love this backing. I can imagine the animals trekking through the flower garden.
When I was young I grew wide...traveling all over the world, trying new things. As I am older, I am growing deep, hopefully making lasting friendships and being even more sentimental. So, here is the quilt in front of Great Aunt Carl's gardenia bush..grown from a single stem in her window in Alabama.
And here is the tree planted by Uncle Kieran when he was 83 on his visit from Ireland...It was 2 feet tall. He wanted us to have something to remember him by...as if....but he was right...
Both plants are huge, bringing back wonderful memories of family love.
