Jubilee quilt, and borders in (on) the pink!
Hi Y'all! Well, I have been working on my Jubilee quilt! This quilt will be a celebration of my 50th year here on planet earth. I have chosen the Civil War Bride's quilt for my celebration quilt, and am doing Karen Mowrey's variation, A Bountiful Life. Above is the second block, the Missing Groom. In the original quilt, the groom is missing, so Karen designed the above block...the groom is now found! This is made from wool applique, and I am all ready to start hand stitching on this one.
And this one! This is the first block...but you know, I just love that groom's block the best so far!!
The pink quilt got it's border. I really love it, although a family member told me flatly "it's too small"...that took the wind right out of my sails, and I will hang it in the closet until I can feel better about it. It is about 60x70 inches, lap sized.
The flowers are blooming at my house!! Hydrangeas, I think...
Tomatoes are turning red...
And Star Gazer lilies are blooming and oh so fragrant!!
