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.
