Sewn together half of the blocks in the quilt for my daughter, she asked me why I didn't have a go at quilting it myself, thought about it for a few days and decided to do that. I haven't attempted such a big quilt before, this will be around 80" by 100" so I will do quilt as you go by splitting the blocks in the quilt into two halves, quilting each half and put them together then add on the two narrow borders and one wider border I can then easily go around and quilt those. That's the theory anyway so watch this space.
It's raining with a vengeance here at the moment so guess the blossom on the cherry tree will be all over the grass by morning. It was looking lovely. There is a young vireya bush in the side border of the garden with absolutely huge buds, first time of flowering and for the past few days I have rushed out to see if they have opened, but nothing yet so hope like crazy that they haven't been damaged by the very heavy rain.
I took the photograph yesterday along with one of my waterlily camellia, I have one pink and this one
As the weather is atrocious it's an added incentive to go and shut myself in my room and get busy on the machine!
Have a happy weekend
