    I think this one turned out pretty good. I know it's my favorite one. Maybe I will get 9 done tomorrow. I would have had more time but our electric was out for an hour tonight and I had to go see the doctor this morning. Hope you like it.

    Thanks, that didn't take long. I just put it on there. Glad you like it. They are my favorite flowers.

    Thanks but I have to say this one. I might put an extra stem under the miccle flower. I'm changing the green colors on the sunflower quilt too. I decided I hate the green that came with the kit.

    You two are so sweet. Do you still live in GUAM? Is that right? I remember all the flowers from your gardens you put on line. Now those were beautiful.

    Yes, I'm still on Guam. UGH!
    The flowers I put on line are just flowers around the yard. I don't have any gardens here. Didn't really have any gardens in Hawaii either. Just too hot to grow the flowers I love.
    All those flowers you are making are making me homesick for the flower gardens I used to have. I would grow ANYTHING I could get my hands on. I'd even let some weeds grow if they were pretty. lol
    But, my favorite was Lamb's Ear and Daisys grown together. Just the colors of the 2 of them next to each other and intertwined was awesome!

    I love flowers too. I don't grow many any more. I just have too much asthma and allergies. I have lilacs but they made me sick last year. I have a few hollyhocks that come up and morning glories but my husband has to take care of everything outside.

    I made a mistake on this page. The gladiolas are block # 8. Not 10. !0 was the sunflower block. I'm gonna start block 7 tomorrow which are the red roses. Shouldn't be too difficult. There are only 3 pieces of fabric in the kit. One green and two different reds. Just don't want to make a mistake and run out. I'm off to bed. Have a great night.

    Wow thanks for all the great comments. Glad everyone seems to like this one. I put the wrong number on it. It's # 8, not 10. I'm starting # 7 the roses and the back ground is almost done. I have 5 finished now. Keeping to schedule. Two of my quilts are being quilted today. My spiral with the silly cat and another one we did a long time ago at Joann's class one day. Should be plenty for the two shows coming up.

    I did put a stem in under the middle glad. I didn't like it just hanging there with nothing.

    Wow to the Roses! I can't make up my mind which one I love the most.
