Happy blogiversary to me...............

11 years ago today I started my blog and this is the 4226th post.  I still love writing my posts and taking the photos for them.

I got 2 more blocks sewn and pressed for the X and + quilt.  I have several more started too.
The Columbines bloomed quite awhile ago so I was really surprised to see 2 new blooms yesterday.






The Balloon flowers are starting to bloom.  They are a much deeper blue but in full sunlight this is the color the camera picks up.  There is one white bloom also over to the right



They are really a pretty flower but as the blooms die the plant looks pretty messy.  I guess that means I should be out there deadheading at that point.

Happy Independence Day to US residents!!

Congratulations on your blogging. I love getting up each morning and reading the blog with my coffee. Your bright colored quilts continue to fascinate and awe me. Here’s to many more.

Happy 11th. anniversary Wanda and I hope you have many more years of sharing your vast knowledge of fabric and color with us. I'm sure all of us who read your blog, enjoy not only your daily postings, but the wealth of information contained on the right side of the page as well. This year was a banner year, in that you were able to give birth (lol) to the Pop-Up Store, giving many people the opportunity to purchase your works of art. Congratulations!

Congratulations! You are my inspiration. I drink my coffee with you every morning. I have learned so much from you, I should pay a royalty. Thank you for all your consistent hard work.

Happy Blogiversary Wanda. You are the Quilt Queen of Color! I have been a follower for awhile now.
I want to tackle the plaid half hexagon of yours I just mentioned in my 7/3 post.
I also have on my to-do list a colorwash of sorts. But the germ of an idea is to combine colorwash with a cubist quilter image.
Anyhoo, you are one of the many online inspirations in the quilting realm.

Happy Blogiversary! My blogiversary is coming up too, and I was looking at some of my older posts. Very interesting to see what has changed and what has stayed the same.

Congratulations on the blog anniversary. It takes a lot of commitment to keep a blog going that long. Also love your X-plus blocks. One of these days I'm going to make an X-plus quilt.

MissPat said...

Thank you, Wanda, for the many hours of design inspiration, instruction, and pure joy you have provided. I often go back to check out earlier posts to follow the history of some of your projects. I marvel at the energy you have to get so much done, not only in the quilt studio, but in the garden as well. I look forward to many more posts and I'm glad you still enjoy blogging as so many others have migrated to other social media which I don't have time for.
Love the color of that late blooming Columbine. You should scatter its seeds around when it matures.
