After a week of procrastinating, I have finally finished another Beach Party quilt. I love this pattern because I can use a lot of scraps. This one measures about 41in. by 57in. (105cm by 145cm) and is a good size for the couch or even a baby quilt. I never know how big these quilts are going to be until they are finished... and they are finished when I hear them speak to me.
The blocks for this quilt were made by using 2 1/2in. square scraps and bigger pieces for the triangle blocks. At the moment I am cutting out more scraps using smaller pieces, (2in. and 1 1/2in.) but those are ongoing projects and I probably won't be finished them until the end of the summer.
Now, what else can I show you? Oh, I know. Here is a favourite perennial of mine! It's called Cranesbill or Geranium. I have another Cranesbill in another part of the garden. It is a pink one, but I think I love these blue flowers the best.
And here is a photo of Mimi, wedged in behind a chair in the solarium. She is trying to soak up every ray of sunshine she can get. Our heatwave is over and it is going to be a very comfortable 20C today.
