Changing projects.....

I decided to play with the 2 small wonky blocks, now officially Wonky 4 and 5.  This one is Wonky 4.  At the top right is the block as I made it at the end of June.  Yesterday I added some old strip piecing that has been on my design wall for a long time as a first border.  Then I continued adding strips around it.  I see that Collage maker has cut off some of the strips at the top and bottom in the left photo.  I'll show the whole photo some other day.
Above is Wonky 5, as I pieced it in June on the left and with strips that I added yesterday on the right.

When I looked outside on the evening of July 3, the tiger lilies were just a bunch of buds.  Then on cue, they opened up on the morning of July 4, just like a bunch of firecrackers.

The pieced border is spectacular! Perfect for the wonkiness. And the Tiger lilies are just beautiful. I love lilies.

Your wonky blocks look great. Spectacular 4th-of-July tiger lilies! I used to have some of these, but over the years they seem to have disappeared. I must plant some more next year.

I always love the tiger lilies when they open - mine are finished but I do like them.

The wonky blocks are looking great. I like Wonky 5 best. It makes me feel as if I could fall down the rabbit hole.

I really like your new series of quilts, Wanda. Tiger lilies are gorgeous. Did you get a couple good rains last week?

The wonky quilts are marvellous -- there's such a fabulous sense of depth to them. They are wonderful to spend time gazing at!

Love the wonkies a lot. The strips are working so well with them.

My tiger lilies opened and did not last long in the heat. I was so disappointed but I am just lucky to keep everything watered. Our temp was 104 degrees today!
