Design wall and garden walk.......

On previous posts I have been showing cropped photos of my triangle project.  Here is what the whole design wall looks like as I approach it.  I got a little more done at the bottom left.  

While I was down there working on it yesterday morning I quilted two more colors on the lantern quilt; two more to go and some light background to quilt.


Last night while I watched Netflix I quilted for almost 3 hours on this quilt.  I am ditch quilting every other row and there are 20 rows to quilt; 11 are done in 3 nights of quilting, 9 to go.


Since it is dry outside and warm, I have been cleaning up the front flower beds so the approach to my front door will look decent on the day of the bridal shower.  I have one more morning to work on it.  Here is the rest of the garden walk from Wednesday.  The Sedum is doing well.
This is one of the varieties of Cranesbill that I have.  No buds yet on it although this is usually the earliest one to bloom.





If you look closely there are two purple violets here.








There are a few white violets too.  The leaves are small here but they will get huge by the beginning of summer.





All of the previous photos were taken in the back garden.  This Hosta is in the front garden.  I noticed a little Columbine right next to it.  My big plant didn't come up last year so I'm happy to see this one.
Most of the Hostas are just peeking out of the ground.   I haven't seen any Jack in the Pulpit yet but I'm sure it won't be long and they will be up.

My hostas are really slow this year, but starting to emerge. Seems so funny we aren't getting veggie garden ready, but grass is growing there. Your progress still amazes me. Chris

The vibrant, shimmering triangle project is coming along great. You have such persistence for designs like this one. And more projects going on than I can keep straight. all are wonderful.

Great eye candy on your wall! and I love the garden walk. My sedum are just starting to show. Not sure what Jack in the Pulpit looks like so I'm looking forward to that pic if you show it.

I love violets. In fact I have some antiques with hand painted violets on them that I display every spring. I wish I had some to pick in my yard as I had many in my home that I had in Lisle. I miss having a bouquet in my house.

I was very interested to see that you use a "normal" machine to quilt. I've just finished my first quilt and am slightly daunted by all the fabric to put through the machine arm. Do I just need patience? lol

Spring is popping out everywhere in your yard. It must feel wonderful too.

It was nice to see your big design wall. Good luck with all of that quilting. My shoulders hurt just thinking about it.

Thank you for sharing pics of your hostas. Being in So. TX...I sure miss my Minnesota flower garden of hostas and day lilies. AND I love your designs 'in the basement'! Keep sharing!
