Quilt top Done

Podunk Posy quilt top DONE!    The last stitch was made yesterday morning.  I was waiting for the perfect lighting to get pictures.  Well I waited to long.  But did manage to get some tomatoes and sweet banana peppers planted and mulched, hoed the garden, watered the new seedlings and got a small garden wagon load of grass clippings from the neighbor for garden mulch.
So we'll try again today for better pictures and writing the last tutorial for the borders assembly.  I'm glad it was finished while my ugly tulips were still blooming.  These are the only tulips I have so my quilt wasn't inspired by them.  Someone gave them to me.  Can you see them in the bottom left of this picture?


Here's a better shot.  UGLY!  Looks like the tulip of death.  Makes me wonder if the person that gave them to me was mad or casting some wicked curse on me!...LOL!  Nah..she's a sweety.


This picture didn't turn out to bad.  It shows more of the true colors.  However my phone camera makes all oranges look very bright.  I call my tech guy(my son) to see what he thinks is the problem.


The next two pictures have absolutely nothing to do with my quilt I just thought they were cute.  These guys are on my route into town.  Now are they donkeys, mules, or jackasses?  I don't know the difference.  I'm a country girl not a farm girl.  My sweety gets that confused also.  There's a big difference in growing up in the country and growing up on a farm.  My grandparents were farmers and I spent time there but not enough to call myself a farm girl.  To much POO on a farm for this country girl.


When taking the pictures it occurred to me that they seem so sad.  They didn't even notice I was there.  What purpose do they have besides keeping these pastures cleared?  Poor ole Eeyore. 


I'm linking up with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts

  2. Such a great quilt. Perfect for spring. I had a friend who was searching for black iris one year! I didn't quite get the appeal, since the colorful iris are so beautiful. To each his own....

  5. Love, love, love this scrappy, pretty top! This was the perfect layout for using those clever Podunk Posy blocks. The butterfly blocks set on point in the corners was a great idea!

  9. Your quilt is stunning. I love it. Your tulip border is so pretty!
    I think those 'ugly tulips' are 'black tulips'. I far as I know there are no real black tulips, but deep purple tulips. They are still trying to cultivate black ones. Like you I do not like those 'black' tulips. I prefer your tulips on the quit.
    Love from The Netherlands where we have in May lot of fields with tulips of all colors!!

  12. Your Tulips are certainly prettier than the real ones... of course, the real ones are a beautiful Burgundy wine color... unusual.
    Love your quilt.
    Hugs

  15. I love your quilt, very pretty! I think your tulips would look great if there were other colors of tulips surrounding them. My favorite tulips are orange, yellow and red!

  17. I pass a house that has some of those same dark tulips, planted with pink tulips interspersed. I love the look of their tulip bed. I also love your quilt. If I ever get thru in the yard and get back to sewing this might be my next project!
