I was looking through a book and found a quilt that only needed 4 fabrics, but that seems so boring so after choosing four I continued to add fabrics. The 5 pictured here are rich looking.
I kept looking until I found one more even lighter fabric to add to it. I don't have any idea what I'm going to make out of them. I'm going to continue looking for a different light fabric in my stash even though I like this one with the others.
A freecycler asked for Lily of the Valley so I contacted her and dug a bunch up for her. I took some more pictures in the garden. Here are the beginnings of Jack in the Pulpit. I can't tell for sure how many of those green shoots are Jacks or if some are hostas. In a few days I'll know.
This is my earliest blooming coral bell. I caught a dandelion and a lot of dead leaves in the picture too. My gardens are more natural rather than groomed. I have found that the leaves turn to compost and the soil is easy to work in.
The Forget me Nots are are in full bloom now. The plant is the biggest it has ever been. I need to dig it out and move it back a little so I hope I don't kill it.
All of the hardy geraniums have buds. This is the first one to bloom. I have about 5 different varieties of them.
The sun was shining brightly on the rest of the buds on this plant. It is big and bushy too. I guess our winter wasn't too hard on the perennials.
The last Amaryllis is blooming inside. It has just 2 flowers. Soon it will be time to set all of the pots outside for the summer.
I added another picture to my 'colorwash' page and 2 more to the 'Kaffe fabric quilts' page.
