I’m getting very close to the end of making flowers for my Garden Gone Wild quilt! Only two more to go after this one. What is block 18? It’s a zinnia.
But it’s not just any zinnia. This one is called the Zinderella Zinnia. Who could resist a flower with that name? When I saw pictures of it, I knew it had to be part of my quilt!
The back. Once again, it’s pressed but the seams are not yet graded. It seems I’m definitely leaving the grading of the seams for the very end. When I have all 20 blocks done, then I’ll grade the seams on the blocks that I’ve not done yet.
Now there are only two blocks left to make for the Garden Gone Wild quilt. The shapes are all printed and ready to sew. One will be the Mesa Peach gaillardia. Once I started looking up the gaillardia I realized it wasn’t that surprising I’d never heard of it as I don’t think it’s a flower that would be easily grown here. But I love the look of that one and it’s going to be in my quilted garden because my garden has the perfect climate for any flower. The final one? I’m not sure quite what it is yet but I know what fabrics are in it and I’m really happy with the look I’m getting with them.
It’s a good thing I’m getting close to the end as it’s becoming more difficult to find background fabrics for each of the flowers in my stash. I’ve made all the flowers from stash and I think I have the perfect setting fabric for the quilt in my stash as well.

It’s not all that often that we can get a photo of Baxter and Jake together so when we saw them sitting like this Sunday night, we had to take the picture fast.
