The rest of my fabric came and I decided to just use half of that amount I thought I would like the tiny dot fabric for Tumalo Trails but I am going to save that part of the fabric for another down the road project.
The newest stuff I’m using in the Trails project
What well be saved for something else
These pieces now cut for the final 9 sets of half square triangles needed – I think.
The mat is finished from the Temecula Mini blocks – I sewed the binding on by machine to practice –not the best job but good enough for mat – it is now washed and dried and finished at 10.5 inches I think after shrinkage. Linking in to Sew Fresh Quilts , Jo’s Country Junction and Midweek Makers from Quilt Fabrication and My Quilt Infatuation. I am also linking to one I just today for a finish and this is small but it is finished! Anja Quilts: TGIFF.
To give an idea of the size – here is a clay bread bowl sitting on it.
The following photos were taken with the phone the tiger lilies blooming full force and the garden looking good.
The herb bed
The morning glories which have not come into buds yet – hope soon they are certainly taking over this area and I have found out that you really need an area about 20 feet tall for them LOL there are also some sweet potatoes in the bed and zinnia’s from last years dead flowers. There are two big sunflowers growing in here too.
The tomatoes and some marigolds, some from last year and some new – I didn’t realize I cut off the last bed and the one made out of cement blocks – 3 more tomato plants in those areas, petunia’s, a cucumber plants – the last raised bed that you can’t see much of there has a zucchini which is dropping blossoms and a yellow squash and butternut squash – there are sunflowers in several beds as well.
And up front are the crinums and the swing – in lots of shade – my front yard is my shady area.
