I Spy A Flowering Snowball

My sister Sue asked me to make a quilt for her service organization to auction in the Fall.

It was to be white and yellow with some of Sue's favorite, green.

I decided to make the Go! Flowering Snowball. There is a tiny little yellow square in the center of each flower. That counts, right?

I made up for it with a totally yellow backing and binding. I hope they raise lots of money with this one! It was fun to make. I was surprised how easily the blocks went together.
This was my inspiration picture. The Marguerite is the official flower of her service organization. If you squint just right, you may be able to see this in the quilt.  (Yes, I do make myself laugh all the time.) 

I even sewed a couple of little daisies into the quilt as I was quilting it.

It is Summertime and it is Houston, so of course it is hot. It's dry now, too, so watering is happening.

I like to let the chickens roam a little out in the yard when it is so hot. They've found that under the fig tree is the coolest spot out there!

I hope you're having a wonderful week and doing lots of things that make you happy! I am so thankful for this life.

Hugs and kisses,

Two More for the USO - Made by Sandy

Since I have nothing completed to share, I thought I would show the two quilts my friend Sandy has made for the USO Lounge. I shared two that I made for the same purpose here and here.

The backing for this first one. Isn't it pretty!
This is Sandy's second for the USO. This one, too, is really pretty! I do love having a friend who enjoys doing the same quilty things I do.

This is the backing for Sandy's second quilt.
A little peek at what's going on outside at Muddle Manor. It is so hot already, but there are still some determined things blooming out there.

I am working on this blooming snowball design for my sister Sue. Long way to go yet before it's finished. The pieces for this one are all cut with the Go! Cutter. They go together really quickly.

I hope you're having a good weekend! It's beautiful here, even if it is hot.

Hugs and kisses,
