16 patch blocks all sewn

I sewed the last 2 blocks for the 16 patch quilt and started putting the second half of the blocks on the design wall.  There are 2 more rows to go on the bottom at this point.  I did that last night but didn't take a photo.  I started sewing the rows and have all of the vertical seams done and 3 horizontal seams done.
I played a little more with the floral colorwash that I showed yesterday.  I'm experimenting with using plainer prints with bolder color at the edges.

Here is a group of 5 plants that I planted last year in early August.  I bought all of the plants on clearance.  There are 4 coral bells, 2 of each color and a Veronica in the middle.  There are little Redbud petals on everything since the trees are done blooming and are leafing out.
The Impatiens planted along the driveway are small but I hope they turn into big bushy plants soon.

Love the promise of growth within those little plants - we rescue clearance plants frequently and have gained some favorites in the mix.

All kinds of stuff popping up at your place- fabric ideas and flowers! Can't wait to see the colorwash develop. Everything seems like it is progressing so well.

Reds and greys, stunning. Looking lovely in your garden too.

Those cora bells are so pretty! I only have the common green ones.
