  9. That is such a cute block. I LOVE the snail. My garden...well...I've just finished the peaches and strawberries, but the tomatoes will be calling my name in about a week.

  10. Unfortunately, dead plants. It seems to be too hot for my plants this year or the deer are eating them.

  11. Beautiful! My "garden" is what the uninformed might call a weed bed . . . asparagus that's gone to seed with a few wildflowers mixed in. It is a riot of wild growth. The bunnies love it, and so do I. :)

  19. I'm afraid I have a "black" thumb but so far I have managed not to kill some Wandering Jew starts and my re-potted Aloe Vera plant seems to be thriving in spite of me!

    Joan, the blocks are delightful! I think writing up instructions is the hardest part as you have to almost assume that people are beginners and hope you don't leave something out. What might be perfectly obvious to you may escape a newbie piecer. The fabric choice for the blocks is cool too.

  20. Mostly what's in my garden are urban deer who make our yard their home. They happily munch and crunch the grass and any emerging shoots of anything. When we decide to do a veggie garden again, we'll fence it. I do love to watch these graceful creatures tend for their families. BTW, love the snail in your applique block.

  21. I think this will be the first year I get to see my Tiger Lily buds open--I've been applying deer repellent faithfully!

  22. Love the fabrics that you have chosen for this project and I can't wait to get started on these new blocks. My garden is really beginning to take off now. It has lots of tomatoes, peppers of several varieties,zucchini and cucumbers. Oh, and I forgot the sunflowers!

  23. Hi, my garden is full of flowers, tomatos, squash and of course the birds favorite strawberries.......they just sit on the netting that is over the plants and let their weight lower them down to eat on those sweet red goodness....

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am not much of a gardener but my favorite flower in my garden are my lovely purple lupines! Love the colors in your block!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't have a garden but I do garden in containers. Rosemary, thyme, basil, oregano, parsley, mint and occasionally a pot of tomatoes or hot peppers because hubby likes it spicy. I love your blocks. Especially that cute little snail!

  26. Since the deer and rabbits make regular visits to any garden I may plant . . . I have no gardens :(
    But I love your blocks and I recognized that CT fabric right away! I love that collection!

  28. I have very little in my garden (no veggie - just flowers) due to our cold spring. A few marigolds and petunias and only one holyhock survived.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My garden is filled with specialty daylilies. They continue to bloom year after year despite my "not so green" thumb.

  30. I have sooooo many plants it would take a very long time to name them all but, one of my favorites is the Hydrangea and I have several of them in different varieties. Love your blocks!

  33. Your flowerpot is absolutely delightful! I love the whimsical design and the way that you used the prints. My garden has tomatoes and herbs and some flowers - not very ambitious, but it will provide plenty of spaghetti sauce.

  35. My garden has a variety of flowers, 3 tomato plants, 1 zucchini plant and 1 cucumber plant. The main part of my garden has raspberry bushes and they are taking over the whole area. I am going to have to learn how to get those under control.

  36. My garden is full of weeds. I'm afraid I'm a better quilter than I am a gardener.

  37. The only thing that grows in my garden is weeds....I do not have a green thumb. I love your blocks and the snail is so cute.

  46. Beautiful blocks!
    I don't garden very much, because of two things one is I do not have much time and the second is there are bugs out there!!! Just kidding, but I really don't like bugs. Anyways, so I usually have a small container garden with pots and planters of geraniums, marigolds, and my favorite petunias! There are also three rose bushes and areas of iris and lilies. Someday, I hope to have more time to really garden.

  47. Love your blocks. Our tomatoes are just starting to grow. We have little ones on the vines. Can't wait till they grow into big one and can have tomatoes on everything.

  48. Unfortunately, I do not have a garden anymore. When I did, corn and pumpkins were my favorite things to plant and watch grow. Now I only have indoor bamboo plants, but they still bring me joy. mtmom57@gmail.com

  49. What a beautiful block Joan, nice design and very different.

  50. My garden is a blank canvas. We just finished a 14 mo renovation and we put pavers down the driveway continuing through half of the back yard. We also installed "fake grass" on another part of our back yard. What's left is a border around the yard and I've been trying to get my husband to call a landscaper to get an estimate for the remainder of the yard(front & back). It's not a big job, but we can't do it. Getting him "moving" is worse than pulling teeth. At least I can make an appointment & go & get it done! We moved back into our home at the end of March and I'm still waiting for him to do something. I have just gotten to the point with my sewing that I can now do some table runners and later a quilt to go with our new decor. Love this QAL. I will probably join in later this year. Thanks for all the inspiration.
