Quilts and Gardens

Here's a picture of the string scrap baby quilt. I took it outside, but because of the pine trees the lighting isn't that great. ( I don't take the best pictures either)
I'm going to check my stash for backing and then I will be quilting it. I think this will be a donation quilt also, unless someone asks for it. I like how it turned out. It's amazing what you can do without buying more fabric. I had to take a picture of this Coral Bells Huechera. It and about 15 others are growing between the patio pavers thanks to it's mother, who sits in a pot on the patio.

I think this is my best picture of the day. Who am I kidding, of the year.

I like your pictures very much. The baby quilt is lovely. I want to make one for my (first) grandchild, who is due in October. I've never made a baby quilt before and could do with some helpful pointers?
Blessings, Star

Love the quilt! It's really cheerful. Your plant and flower pictures are fun too. Thank you for sharing them.

Oh the pansy! It's perfect. And I think I have those coral bells!

The quilt is just as pretty and perfect as the pansy!

Awesome job.
