Garden Path - More of Chocolate, Aqua and Misty Green

Front and Back

Don't you just love the Garden Path Block?
I wanted to make the  Garden Path block having seen it on another site - soo why not as a medallion on the back of quilt? I had tons of fabric left over from the blocks but nothing large enough so piecing was my next option.

Like it? Here is a free pdf pattern at McCalls Quilting - Garden Path Block.
Of course I had to take pictures of it in my garden.

To see the complete Craftsy Block of the Month quilt go here.

While outside taking pictures I snapped a couple other pictures.

Momma Robin was having fit attack while I was taking shoots of her eggs in my Granny Smith apple tree.

My tree is laden with apples this year. Last year there were maybe a total of 5 apples, and the year before there was 1 apple, yes only one apple. So I am quite pleased that I may get a couple more this year if  the squirrels don't beat me to them!

Don't you love these colors - red and pink begonias and yellow marigolds. I planted them this morning. 

My one and only miniature sweet pepper plant. I placed two whirl-i-gigs hoping that they will frighten away the nibblers.

I hope this doesn't encourage the nibblers.

Not busy now but it does once the birds realize it is filled again. We had a couple visitors this morning.

The Oakleaf Hydrangea Bush has great blooms this year.

Thanks for stopping by.

Chocolate, Aqua and Minty Green - Craftsy BOM 2012 Quilt Top

Quilt top is done!

Remember Amy Gibson from Hickory Dickory Dock who led Craftsy's Block of the Month in 2012?
She chose some fantastic blocks. Many were new techniques for me such as: Hexies, Asteriks, Dresden Plates, Chevrons and Drunkard's Path. Not new were Log Cabin Variables, Nine Blocks, Paper Piecing, and Nine Blocks.

Below is the link to access monthly patterns and instructional videos on Craftsy's website:
It was a good day to sew since it is a rainy one. More rain is predicted to come with Tropical Storm Andrea heading our way. We have flash flood warnings with the possibility of 2 to 4 inches of rain. I hope it isn't more than this. It will be a great weekend to sew.

Wishing all of you a safe weekend especially those of you in the path of the brewing storms!
