Last Blooms



94 Flowers Completed

Just as summer ends, so does the flowers for Karen's Flower Garden.  It was an excellent month for flower making, as I stitched together the last 18 flowers.  Ending up with two more then I thought I would have, it is now time to arrange my blooms and watch as they slowly turn into a beautiful garden.


Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.

Until next time.....happy quilting!

Hi Karen,

I love your flowers - well done.

I also love the sentence about flowers and fruits - this is my favorite time of year

The flower almost looks like it is weeping..almost like a lady with blonde hair, her head down weeping.

Beautiful quilt!

Are you setting them without a border (path) running between the blocks??? I LOVE the way you have them layed out. Looks great! Congrats on finishing so many.
