Even more pink........

I made enough blocks to finish this out at 8x10 blocks instead of the planned 7x9.  I still need to do a little rearranging.  I have 64 warm color blocks still left so I can sew that quilt in the 7x9 configuration.



If you click on this photo you can see that the coneflowers are all across the back garden.  The large green leaves are one of the sunflower plants.  The other patch of orange tiger lilies is hidden by the redbud tree.

The small sunflowers were turned to face the house today so I had to take another photo.  You can see the huge sunflower plant better in this one.  The squirrels tried to knock it down so it is leaning to the left but still getting ready to shoot out more blooms.

I love the colors in your quilt. Your garden is wonderful. I like this time of year when many things are blooming especially what I call "old fashion" flowers. I love your garden, reminds me of when I was a kid.

Love how it turned out. Much better than just solid green.

Really like how the green quilt is looking. It's beautiful just like your garden.

Yes! This looks just stunning! It captures a garden so well. It is amazing how squares can look organic. Once again, you have gone beyond the standard of a well pieced quilt and pushed it into a new strata.

I love how you mixed some warm pink blocks with your rich green blocks. Makes me think of pink flowers on a green bush.

If you added a few yellow blocks it would look much like your garden!!! Very Monet.

Well now if your quilt doesn't look like your garden I don't know what else does. (*._,*) Love it Wanda.

I love how this quilt is going to look. The pink added in among the greens was inspired!
And your garden is gorgeous!

Beautiful pictures, Wanda! Your quilt block arrangement and your yard pics just made me smile.

Others have said it, but it is like your garden with coneflowers peeking thru the green. The block with the polka dots green pulls my attention away from the calming effect of the overall piece.
