WIP Wednesday

I had a fun quilty week! How about you?

Finish: I finished my mother's Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt in time for her birthday party! She really loves it and it has a place of honor at the foot of her bed. Blog reader Karen suggested the name Timeless Garden. Love it! Now I just have to make the label.


Blocks: These 4 string blocks are for the new Mini Scrap Basket Swap. What fun! I can't wait to dive into my modern scrap bin to make more.


I'm keeping up with the Blogger's BOM. You can see all the amazingly diverse color combinations in the Flickr group.


Enough stalling... I need to focus on the Wedding Ring full time until the top is done. I'm hoping to get that much done before Christmas. Pat will be ready to quilt it after the first of the year.

Now off you go...

Those string blocks look so soft and sweet with your scraps. Very nice! And, good for you for doing a wedding ring quilt. I'm not sure if I am there yet, but one day....

Tina, Everything in this post is just wonderful...but my favorite photo is the one of your mother looking at the quilt you put together with the hexie flowers she had made. What a beautiful story. Thanks so much for sharing all of this with us. Hugs...

A gorgeious gift for your grandma!
When I learned to make string blocks....she called them strip blocks. I even made a squidoo lens entitled how to make strip quilts. I need to update probably with the correct name.
