Evening Bloom . . .

As I work on getting ready to appliqué my last Evening Bloom block, I also need to start working on the border blocks.

I need 76 of these blocks for the outer border. 

I don't know why I waited until the end to start on them, they are easy and go quickly.  But working on 76 of them all at once will be very time consuming.  I can't help but regret that I didn't work on one a week the whole time I was working on this project.  I would have them done and it wouldn't have taken any noticeable time out of my sewing time.  Oh well, it is what it is!

Here's a basketful of step one, sewing together each end.

Then I'll need to trim them, piece them, and finally, appliqué them on the block.  I'm hoping to be done with this whole quilt by the end of June, there's no more time to waste.

I've been enjoying these roses at my house,

I thought you might enjoy them too!


  1. On this one I clearly expressed my jealousy that you are close to the finsh line on this one. Mine has stalled but after taking a needle turn applique class recently I think I'm back on track but with a smaller project. Not as much prep work for needle turn vs the starch method. Can't wait to see it finished!

  2. This quilt is exquisite! Can't wait to see the finished quilt!


I try to respond to all my comments but sometimes I just don't get the job done. Please know that I am reading your comments and appreciate you taking the time to add a little of yourself to my blog.
