This project has been on a design wall in my basement for about 2 months. I was inspired by one I saw in an Etsy shop. I have no idea what measurements were used in that one but I had a bunch of 2" strips of striped fabric and some 6.5" squares already cut so I am working with them. It will be a small quilt, just an instant gratification quilt--all of the pieces already cut and easy piecing. I didn't do any sewing yesterday. I was at the family party for 6 hours and I will see family again today.
This is a Red Penstemon plant in my back garden. It is in the shade for more hours than in the sun. The two plants in the front garden are a much deeper red leaf and are in the sun for more hours. There are lots of Lily of the Valley and Violets in this shot too. They have spread all over the back garden.
