Gathering Garden is a flimsy!

Gathering Garden
by Kim Diehl
I think I have finished all the quilts I wanted to make in Kim's book,
Simple Charm.
Besides, I am tired of appliqueing!

I have been piecing up a storm on the picnic quilt for my granddaughter.

Since it National Quilting month,

And I cannot resist a 'house' quilt, especially if it has a scrappy pieced border.
Those of you with good eyes can see that there is a border missing...
waiting for a perfect toasty piece of Jo Morton to arrive at TOWQS.

We spent last week celebrating my granddaughter's 1st birthday...
jeez how time flies,
especially when you are having so much fun!

Now to resume working on a few projects on my WIP list...
the first being a quilt for my granddaughter!
