A Busy Weekend in my Garden!

We had lots of visitors this weekend.  And then last night we had a barbeque with my DS, DD and her fiance.  The weather has been perfect - real summer-time temps and sunshine.  Love it!!!

In keeping with the 4th of July weekend, I am posting my July hexie block.  (Happy Belated 4th of July to all of my friends south of the border.)  It's a cherry ice cream cone. Anybody want a lick?  I know that this block was only just posted on The Hexie Blog less than a week ago, but I fell in love with it and wanted to make it right away.


For years I have been seeing the POTC blocks on blogs and other places on the internet.  I wanted to make some.  I finally found the template for it serveral weeks ago and started to cut it out.  Then I put it in a 'safe' place where even I couldn't find it.  But yesterday it was just sitting there in a plastic container.  How did I miss that?  A few of the pieces had already been sewn together, so I finished it last night.  I know the colours are kind of loud, but I guess those are the fabrics that were beside my machine at the time.  I think I will keep the colourful theme going.  I love colour!


I will leave you with a shot of my colourful lily.  Told you I love colour!  I planted this a few of years ago and it keeps surprising me with its beauty.


Hoping everyone is having a great weekend!

I am linking up with Angie at The Quilting Reader's Garden.

that is one of the prettiest lilies that I have ever seen. I love the way the color is located on the petals.

Love your Lucy Boston block...and I really like the fact that you are using "loud" colors! I have started mine and will Not be using drab repo fabrics, but bright and loud as well...looking forward to seeing more of yours come together.

Two wonderful blocks! Where did you find the templates for the POTC - I guess I need to make one as they keep showing you everywhere. Love that ice cream cone, and thanks for linking to Hexie Weekend.
