Robert's Floral Garden

It has been a beautiful week in Columbus.  I had lunch with the family and the remainder of the day has been spent relaxing and working on this top.  It has been in the works for a few years now so I am excited that it is almost complete.
These are the last 2 applique' blocks.  The remaining 2 blocks are pieced..still not sure why he does this in his patterns but I am sure there is a method to his thoughts.
I was not sure if I was going to do the pieced blocks but have decided to do them I am hoping by next weekend they are done and the assembling can begin.  Each block will be bordered in a gold/yellow fabric and then sashing will be scraps that are left over from all the blocks.  Should be interesting.


  1. You do such beautiful applique, Maggie!

    This is going to be a wonderful quilt

  2. Well thank you very much. I wish I could count too!!! I realized tonight that I have 3 more blocks to go...all pieced but I am SO ready for this top to be done!!!

  3. These blocks are looking gorgeous. I assume this is the quilt you are making for me, right??? well, a girl can hope. LOL I am looking forward to seeing the top assembled.
