Cutting and quilting..........

I'm still cutting the Kaffe fabric 2.5" squares.  I have 110 different fabrics cut so far, lots to do yet.
I have had this quilt basted and ditch quilted for a long time waiting to do the free motion quilting with clear monofilament thread.  Click here to see the whole top.  I did a tutorial when I was making this modular quilt.  If you go to my Label list on the right sidebar it is called Modular Quilt Tutorial.  I think I am about half way done with the quilting. 

I planted some Canna bulbs yesterday at the lot line in back.  I may plant a couple in pots too.

All those Kaffe squares make me weak in the knees. Rain here again. I had two large trees taken down yesterday because they got too large for the space. Boy, did they ever ruin and trample down all the blooming flowers. Kind of heartsick.

I looked up the tutorial and clipped it. It is a great idea for using some fabric I did not want to cut up the design. Thank you! I started reading your blog in late 2011, so I missed it.

I am trying Canna bulbs this year too, I haven't planted them in years I wonder how they well do, they are not as big and full as I thought they would be so far

I love this quilt, it's very unique. I wonder if this pattern could be used for some of the big blooms in Kaffe fabrics?

oh! I remember when you posted this! It encouraged me to try to make a modular quilt myself for the first time. I gathered up fabric showing the Alaskan animals to remember my Alaskan quilt cruise - i was really proud of myself and proud to show it to my family and friends!

My back aches a little just looking at all those cut squares. It will be worth it in the end, I am sure. --Andrea

Always enjoy seeing your Farm Girl blocks, us country girls love them...

I can hear the theme music to "Out of Africa" playing when I looked at your Modular Quilt. Each of your designs always tells me a story. (*._.*)
