July 11 th, a year later

It is hard to believe that a year has gone by! Can’t say my writing skills have improved,but it was fun to visit projects that were done and a reminder of ones that haven’t. 

The Be Colorful top is coming along, I really like the bold colors. 

 
Then I got sidetracked with a challenge of making a pattern from a layout of plans for planting the flowerbeds of Charlecote park of England. A friend gave me the challenge.

 
I decided instead of making blocks, I would go with a center piece.

  
It is hard to get a good picture for it is done with pencil.

  
I will probably appliqué the petals on the outside edges.

It took me a little bit to figure out how to break it down for piecing. This is what I decided on.

  
Still a little hard to see because of using pencil. I used freezer wrapping paper to draw pattern on.

  
Pieces cut and ready to use as templates.I did sew a few pieces together to see if measurements were going to work. They did!! 😄

  
By the way these are not the colors that I will be working with, so don’t freak out……😉I just grabbed some scraps for trial. That way if it didn’t work out I could just throw it in the trash.

  
Picture of the parks flowerbed! It’s so beautiful….. I would love to visit there, but I’m afraid that I will only be there by picture.

Until later, Deb
