My indoor garden

Hey quilty friends!  Top of the morning to everyone!  Did everyone work in the yard or stitch up a storm this weekend?  Me? a little of both.  I'm so excited to get this week started.  There's tons of things on the to-do list.  Mowing, weeding and planting are at the top of the list.  This time of year sewing Posy's takes a backseat to the real ones.  And just like my real flower garden these Podunk Posy are slow to bloom.  Slowly but surely I'm making progress with hopes of a Friday Flimsy.  
All 36 are ready to be squared up sometime today.


Hopefully I can squeeze in sewing a few steams and leaves this evening also.   If you'd like to make a Podunk Posy or two for your indoor quilt garden, you can find the pattern here  or in the tutorials tab at the top of this page.   I'm off to mow the grass, my favorite yard chore.  Nothing smells better than fresh cut grass...well maybe fresh baked bread.  I should email Yankee Candle company of a new scent they should market...Fresh Cut Grass.....I'd buy it!

I love your posies. And it's a pleasure to see all the fabrics cut and piled up like this. I've done a posy myself yesterday. So fun. Thanks for the pattern.

Pretty posies! Gardening and yard work take precedence this time of the year for me, too. Another reason much of my sewing takes place after dark! Good luck with your Friday flimsy goal!

I picked some weeds...Lots more of that to do.
Love your tulips.

I would buy it too! LOL I'll be mowing tomorrow, hoping to find some sewing time. Your tulips are great - I love the colors you are using. Thanks for linking up to MCM, I appreciate it! :)

Your posie blocks are perfect for using up scraps. Thanks for sharing them with Oh Scrap!

such pretty posies best of luck squaring them up. My back garden needs mowing but lots of rain last nght which has fed all the dandelions and daisies that unfortunately pop up all the time!

Kate said...

Beautiful posies! Unfortunately me and dear daughter are allergic to grasses, we hide when My Guy mows.

Gorgeous posies! I love your fabric choices, makes me want to sew and tackle my garden... it definitely needs some love out there but the weather's getting cold :(

Love your posies! And how organized you are with your stem and leaf pieces! Yes, digging in the garden is a priority now. Baking bread candle.....what a great idea!

Everything you make is so bright and cheery! Love your posies. Looking forward to seeing how you put them all together.

I love flower quilts! I started one many years ago when people were still using cotton/poly blends, and whe I got back into quilting a few years ago pulled it out. It was appliqued irises, and I had at least 1/5 of it done. I knew how badly the poly would start to pill over a few uses, and pitched it. It broke my heart at the time, but I knew I would groan every time I had to work on something that wouldn't loss. Your patchy flowers are going to be beautiful all together in a garden quilt. Can't wait for your Friday flimsy!

Your Posey's are so pretty. No planting or mowing here. There has been so much rain here.

Really pretty, I think at this stage I prefer a fabric garden! Our 2 dogs have beaten a few paths into the real one!

Jeanne said...

Your posies are beautiful! The perfect project after a long winter.

Lovin' those tulips! It snowed here that past two days (Nova Scotia) so for now, fabric florals is all we're enjoying in terms of gardening....but spring will arrive sooner or later. Or so the weatherman has promised! Can't wait to see the whole quilt...the colours look so fresh and pretty!
