I put the new blocks up on the wall and rearranged the ones that were already there. The star corners are just placed there so I can see what it will look like; they aren't probably the colors that will be in the final quilt. Some star corners would end up at the edge and extend into the border. I'm trying to decide if I want to do that or just place plain corner blocks in those spots.
I know some of you think I am a good gardener, but the truth is I haven't spent quality time in the flower beds for the last 3 summers. If you look closely at this photo you will see weeds and maple trees, and maybe a redbud tree.
This is the front of the same flower bed with the butterfly weed right next to the sidewalk and the shorter plants behind it. Even the cracks in the sidewalk are overgrown. I think I might be at the point where I will have to ask for help to get this all under control. I can see 3 redbud trees in this photo. It has been above 90 for 2 days with 6 more days of it predicted. All I can say is I'm glad it isn't over 100 degrees like so much of the country is.
