Strip Twist

Yes, indeed, finished!  And I think it turned out really well.  I like it!  It is a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter, if you are interested in making one.


Here's a little closer look and you can see I did use the two batiks I bought last weekend. 


This one is for a guy who's a guitar player, so of course I had to put a few in there for him.


And here's the back , mostly covered up by that huge rosella bush in the garden.


I harvested a nice big bowl of them and will get more tomorrow.  I'm thinking I might try making jelly this time.


I also harvested this nice little bunch of mustard greens.  They were delicious for lunch today.  There is just nothing like fresh from the garden produce!

I'm thinking on another quilt.  Haven't quite decided on a plan yet though.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and lots of fun!

Hugs and kisses,

Looks like your garden is still being very productive.

Yes, and I really like it too.
Fresh produce from the garden can't be beaten.
