August Star Crazy Blocks

Here are the August blocks for the Star Crazy BOM. Eight months done, four more to go.  This month was 9 of the 6 inch blocks for the border.
Here are all of the 6 inch blocks that I have done so far.  Coming along nicely!
I also went to take some pictures of my garden today. This is my clematis.  I have had this for about 5 years.  Last year was the first time it bloomed.  Only one flower.  Look at what is happening this year!!  This is only one side of the plant.  There are about 30 flowers this year.  Yea!
This is a lily that I planted last year.  I love the colors.
And one last picture of a rose that is blooming.  This is a Tropicana rose, it smells wonderful.
Have a great day.


Another mystery solved

Yea!! I have finally gotten all of the pieces of the Yankee Pride Spring 2010 mystery quilt together.  We had a very nice Vermont summer day here which was helpful in the final push to get this done.  Along with the nice temperature we did have a windy day, which presented a challenge in keeping all of these pieces oriented in the correct direction.  I still have an inner and the outer border to still put on, but I love this quilt.  I have to say, this was a complete mystery for a long time.  The only thing I knew was that there were what felt like a million of those little burgundy 1 inch squares. 

The other finish that I have to show is another baby quilt.  A coworker of mine is having a baby any day now.  Maybe this weekend?  We will see if she is at work tomorrow.  When I started the quilt I didn't know if it was a boy or a girl, so I picked neutral colors.  I hope the baby enjoys it.  I was very happy with the results.

I will be back soon........Kristin
