Speaking of flowers, I finished the quilt made from my bee friends' flower blocks. I have very unimaginatively called it spring flowers. I decided to sash the individual flowers with fabric that remind me of grass. Keeping with the analogy, for the binding I chose a fabric that could be imagined as a picket fence if you look closely.
Should I have sashed it in white, probably, but it's bright and happy and it will likely cheer up someone's bed at the nursing home my mother lives in.
The fun thing about online bees is that a group of strangers get together and trust each other enough to send blocks made with their favourite fabrics. For me it's like Christmas when the blocks arrive. Sometimes the fabric is exactly what I would have bought and sometimes not, but they always play well together.
The back is a perfect example of why we should measure twice and cut once. I did not!
I tried to casually toss the quilt over the honeysuckle bushes, but the wind kept thwarting my art shots!
Here it's casually draped over the cover to the spring (supplies water to our house and barn). In the background you can just see one of the raised vegetable beds.
