Opus Gluei - Challenge # 13 - How does your Garden Grow?

The challenge at Opus Gluei this week is to be inspired by gardens.
I have had this quilt kit for way too long. I broke it out and am really glad I did.

It has been way too long since I have sewn anything. We just got rid of a throw pillow because it needed mending and it had been too long waiting. Oops! I guess I should have hung onto it a bit longer.

Anyway, here are the few blocks that I have managed to get done. I really like them. Even if they are rather pastel-ey. Not sure that they will become a quilt.

Perhaps they will find themselves on the table in the form of placemats. Or a table runner.

Or maybe they will end up on the wall to please all who walk by.

Or on a bed for one to rest a weary head in the form of a pillow.

Whatever their final form, they will be sure to bring a smile to my face. And hopefully to everyone else that sees them.

I know we talked about this but I do love this project - make some pillows already. But how funny that we each approached this from the perspective of a color palette that is totally the other's forte?

Oh, and when you have finished the pillows - just let me know and I'll get you the rest of the new address (;-D)

I am so jealous that you can quilt. I should take a class. I have a beautiful quilt on my bed that my mom made. But I think the sewing gene skipped me. And the knitting, and the crocheting, and the cross stitch one too.
The cooking gene I got, whew!
I think pillows would be awesome out of this.
