Before I started down the path of making my garden of ribbon flowers, I had never heard of a ranunculus. Thank you to those who suggested it!
I’m glad to have this one added to my garden as I did need some yellow flowers and I love its cheerfulness.
The back, after pressing but before grading the seams. I seem to be leaving grading the seams to the end on most of the blocks. Maybe it’s because I’m getting anxious to get to that 20th block!
I’ve begun the next block, the Zinderella Zinnia. Then I have one more pink one and I’m also going to add a gaillardia to the garden. Thank you to Joanne for suggesting that one! That will take the total to 20 blocks. With any luck, I’ll have the flowers completed by the end of the month.
There have been a few questions lately about where to get the pattern for the Ribbon Flower block. I’m using the Inklingo Ribbon Flower collection to print the shapes on the back of my fabrics to make this block. I can’t imagine making it any other way as having the matching points and perfect stitching lines makes it easier to make this block than it may appear.
The elevator lobby flowers. I love this arrangement.
Jake seems to be getting more used to me taking pictures of him.
Baxter has a tendency to curl up on top of Mr. Q.O.’s printer. He has lovely soft places on which to curl up, like couches and chairs, but often chooses this hard printer on which to snooze.
