Pink progress.........

More mindless sewing, more blocks.  This is about 1/4 of the quilt.  The blocks are 8" (2.5" strips) and there will be 9 blocks one way and 12 the other way.  There will be a larger proportion of the darker blocks than I show here.

We got more rain yesterday afternoon and my zinnia patch is loving it.  I have never had a sunny spot to plant zinnia seeds and this year I had finished digging out unwanted plants in a round bed in my front yard where there is sun most of the day.  I had planned to plant grass seed but then I figured why not plant zinnias this summer and then decide in the fall if I want grass there instead.  I planted 2 different kinds so I hope I get a variety of colors of flowers.

I planted a row of zinnia seeds here too I had room next to a row of green beans and put zinnias on one side of them and purple cone-flowers on the other. The zinnias are about ready to flower but the cone-flowers are tiny - I don't think they usually flower until the second year. I had thought I might try to do one veggie bed in flowers next year so I will be doing some transplanting later in the year.

The great thing about zinnias is that they bloom until the frost gets them and their flowers are long lasting. I should plant more.

We grew lots of zinnias when we lived in Indiana - here, they don't flourish the same way. Hope yours do VERY well this summer.

Loving the pink 16 patch and I think I'll be putting zinnias in come summer in New Zealand, such lovely colours.

I love the pink quilt. You have given me the perfect solution for all of my pink batiks I've been saving for just the right quilt. Thank you! I love your colors and the way you create with colors.

Your zinnias look good! Mine have been ravaged by the deer and weeds. I just have not had time to weed early in the mornings or it has been too hot. I quit watering my coneflower seeds since it did not look like after 2 1/2 weeks that they were coming up. Same with the Shasta daisies.
