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.
