I've had these little disappearing nine patch blocks for a long time. They were leftover from a previous quilt and I just forgot about them. After finishing the floating circles quilt, I've been at sort of a loose end, not really knowing what I want to do next. So, in looking through my various caches of stash, I found these and there were just enough to set them six rows by seven rows. I bordered them in a solid red and then with the red and white print.
The backing is two red flannel fabrics. Don't you like the Mickey Mouse?
Here's a closer look at the binding with the backing on the bottom and the front on top. I think some child will really like it one of these days. My friend Sandy and I are making quilts now for a woman's shelter.
Meanwhile outside the minions (chickens) are busily cleaning out the flower beds.
The sky today has been such a beautiful, brilliant blue. The bare tree is a pecan in our neighbor's yard. They are always the last to get their leaves. The leaves you can see in front of that are peach tree leaves. Spring is well and truly here, thank God! I was beginning to think Winter would never end.
Our yellow angel trumpet has all dead big, tall branches, but as you can see, new growth has already appeared at the base. It's time to get those dead branches taken out now. I have been waiting to be sure we were through with freezing weather.
This is new growth on the fig tree. We have had a more normal (that is, rainy) Spring this year, so hopefully we'll have some figs!
And here's a little look at other parts of the back yard and patio. Don't you love seeing the flowers come back? I sure do!
I hope you are seeing something in your world that gives you hope for a brighter future.
Hugs and kisses,
