I decided to take a look at the flowers that have bloomed so far as I decide what other flowers to add to the Gardens Gone Wild quilt.
So far there’s the iris, anemone and sweet pea.
Then the marigold and chrysanthemum.
And finally, the periwinkle and wisteria.
Then there are these three that I don’t think are going to be in the Gardens Gone Wild quilt. Perhaps they’ll be the beginning of a table runner or a small wallhanging.
While I love the first pink one, the placement of the fabrics doesn’t quite remind me of a peony and I can’t think of a flower that it might be. The second pink one definitely doesn’t remind me of a flower. But I love the background I used for it so will be removing those background pieces to use for one of the Gardens Gone Wild flowers. The blue one also doesn’t make me think of a flower and it too will lose its background fabric. Perhaps if I use the same background for those two as I did for the first pink one that will turn them into the beginning of another quilt or table runner. I know once I finish making the flowers for Gardens Gone Wild, I won’t want to stop making ribbon flowers. There are so many variations possible with the Inklingo Ribbon Flower collection that I think I could be making these blocks for a long, long time!
Right now I have the shapes printed for a tea rose, morning glory and delphinium. I’ve got a good start sewing the morning glory but have, once again, been spending a lot of time looking at flowers online and have a long, long list of ones that I think I want to include in the Gardens Gone Wild quilt. It’s definitely going to be a quilt with 20 blocks at this point.
Jake had possession of the upper tier of the kitty tree early yesterday afternoon when I once again set about trying to get a good photo of his eyes. This still doesn’t quite capture their colour. I’m going to go back through some of the pictures of him that we took with different cameras and see if I can find one that really did capture their colour.
Then Baxter had possession of the upper tier. While I was taking this picture of him, he was keeping his eye out for Jake.
