James used a Greek key pattern in the sashing between the Broken Dishes blocks.
Can you see it? It took us a while to come up with a quilting plan that would work with such busy blocks. I'm very happy with the results.
I've also sewn together all the pieces of my current Parts Department Quilt, started for Scrap Happy Day on the 15th.
Once I'd assembled the smaller pieces it was easier to see the quilt as a whole. Subsequently a couple of the 12" blocks were moved around. I'm thinking I'll bind this as-is. I already have a back made for it. It will finish at about 48" x 60."
The rose bush we inherited when we bought this house is in full bloom. It's right outside my studio window and I've let it grow tall enough to enjoy the blooms right from where I spend most of my time sitting. The two rose bushes we planted off the back deck last year are beginning to bloom now too. I finally went out and pulled the worst of the weeds from around their feet. As a reward I brought in one specimen from each bush.
