Super Fast Square In A Square Quilt

I finally remembered to take a picture of the Square In A Square top I was working on this past winter. I used Anita Grossman Solomon's method, Here is her video that describes how it works. I just used scraps and didn't try to match anything as long as there was contrast. I would like a design wall so I could play around a bit more with block placement.

I have been working on a miniatures garden. I was going to put a rock garden in a place we normally planted annuals, but then I happened to see miniature plants and trees at a garden store and was instantly hooked. This picture is after I planted the plants, the name tags are still in because I wanted to use the picture to draw a diagram so later I will know which plant is which. I am going to the beach sometime this week to get some small stones for a path and accents. I already had the little flower pot and mini gnome.

Gardens = Much Less Quilting

The weather here in upstate NY has been a bit cooler than normal this spring. We finally have finished our planting for this year and are looking forward to some nice warm days to while away in the shade.
