Iris at the College and a quilt





The bottom two photos are of the iris bed at Surry Community College. The iris have been exceptionally beautiful this Spring. Maybe because we had such a hard winter? The top two photos are of my latest quilt finish. It is a twenty block "disappearing 9-patch" and it makes up so quickly. The fabric came from walmart before they got rid of their fabrics, from a $1. yd. table. I like the froggie print, and have cut out one in blue froggies, too. Shizuku kitty always goes over to check out the just-finished quilt top when I spread it out to check on it. She would get on the top, and my dear Boo would crawl underneath. The finished quilt will go to Project Linus in Carroll County, VA (Shizuku stays here!!).

The quilt is just sweet! Love the cheerful colors and design. Our iris aren't out yet here; those are beautiful.

Boy we got hit was a cold spell that is just like winter but with the sun out. I mean blanket time. I guess the iris's need it but I don't. Love your quilt and looks like I am not the only one.
