Variety.......

Rain again....this is what the peonies look like from the studio window.  You can see I have a lot of buds out there if it will just warm up and stop raining.  I have picked 2 bouquets already from the 3 types that are blooming so far.
I cut 16 more Kaffe fabrics in 2.5" squares in my ongoing project.  

Then I basted a colorwash last night so I should be able to have one finish this month.  Last year I didn't have any complete finishes.  This top was finished one year ago and is shown on this post. 

It looks like a square here but it is rectangular.  This one is made from 1.5" x 3" finished rectangles and it is one of my favorites.

I remember this colorwash. I think I like this orientation best- with the blue on the right side.

The colorwash is gorgeous. You should have fun quilting it as you will be looking at it close up. My tree peonies are blooming, but not the herbaceous.

You can send that unwanted rain to us. We're ready for more now!

I love that colorwash. The rectangles make it so interesting.

Yes, I remember this one too. I like the yellow at the top best. We had a terrific storm yesterday afternoon, rained so hard I couldn't see the highway I was driving on and a car had driven off the road into the median, driver and car unhurt but stuck in mud. Rain, rain go away, come again some other day.

That is a beautiful top! Rain here today, tomorrow, Sunday, Monday - it is a good thing I have so much sewing to do!

I can see you have lots of buds waiting to open and your bushes are a lot bigger than mine. I took some photo's today and will share one with you. We are getting lots of sun at the moment but I hope we get a little more rain soon, to save me getting out the hose pipe :)

You are so talented. I love your colorwash.

those peonies, what a display. And the colourwash, it glows from either view.

I can see why this is your favorite color wash.... it is spectacular ! You always blend the fabrics into such exotic color washes.

Love the peonies... and just to look up from your machine to see those from time to time gives you all that exuberant creative energy.

Oh, to walk through your garden and inhale the glorious scent of peonies!! It looks as though you're going to have some huge bouquets of peonies.
