midnight garden


the 5 patchwork blocks are done, next come the applique blocks....these fabrics are from an oriental collection gifted to me earlier this year, for which i've been waiting for the right kind of project that would highlight these beautiful prints.  hoping once the floral applique squares are done, i will have done them justice.  *** in addition to finishing these blocks, spent a fair amount of time corralling scraps and getting them organized before the sew-along starts later this month.   since my available sewing space is always catch-as-catch-can, need to keep things where they can be found and also close at hand.  also basted the spools piece, sewed some on a couple of other projects, put together more scrappy 9-patch blocks, and surfed the net a fair amount of time--the good and bad of having lots of free time.  once my belongings and i are reunited, that'll change of course....can you say 5 am sewing?  oh yeahhhh!

  1. The Asian blocks look marvelous and such accurate piecing on them! Stay cool in this wretched heat wave and sew on!
