Center section sewn......

I liked the polka dots yesterday too and wanted to use all of the blocks in one quilt so I took layout 3 and substituted the dot for the gray print I had in there yesterday.  I have the center section sewn together and just have to decide if this is my final choice for the outer border.
It is going to get cold the next few nights so these remaining plants in the porch pots will probably be gone soon.

The low growing sumac bushes are changing color and dropping their leaves.
I have one solid rose color cactus blooming too.  I am seeing the first buds on one of the darker green plants and I'm hoping it is red.

I am really liking this quilt. We get your weather about a day after you. It's cold and rainy today. My geraniums are still hanging in there and I love that. My Christmas cactus is not budding yet. Yours are magnificent, aren't they?

Susan said...

Oh yeah...I really REALLY like this one!

Mary said...

Great quilt, I love the layout and the polka dots are just perfect. The red is perfect for the border. I would say that it's getting cold here too - but I'm in Aurora, so I'm only about 20 miles away from you! LOL

It will be a lovely quilt, like it very much. Your cactus is adorable. Here in Sweden it is also rather cold and in the north parth it is plenty of snow but not in the south there I live.

I like this quilt a lot, perfect for a crib size quilt which is what I mostly make.

Pat Converse said...

Oh, yes . . . I love that color for the border!!

Cacti looks like a silk scarf floating through the air.

Angie said...

JJM said...

Stars, pinwheels, dots, and border every single element is just stunning ! It just jumps off the screen even more so than yesterday! Absolutely love it.

Photo's of your foliage as always is so pretty. I can see how your plants inspire your design and work.
