I love the way the Rose of Sharon blooms look as they are opening. They are as delicate as tissue paper and so beautiful. Even the buds are beautiful. I don't know if Rose of Sharon is a tree or a bush. I've seen it as both so maybe there is more than one variety. The great thing is that they just keep blooming and blooming over a long period of time.
Here is another quilt in the process of blooming. With this one I started in the center with the lightest fabrics, unlike the one I posted a few days ago.
A little more progress and some squaring off at the edges, not knowing how big it will be at this time in the designing. It actually continued growing out both sides before it was finished.
The finished top waiting to be quilted. This one is 53" x 40".
