Masion De Garance finish and Vintage Rouge progress

     Good News ! The 90 degree weather went away for a couple of days so I was able to finish the binding on my Maison De Garance Hot Cross quilt.

                  I just love this fabric and I am so glad I was able to finish it.
                I made this using 1 layer     cake and a jelly roll..  Finished size is 78 " X 78 "

                                                     I chose a lovely floral border

                                                 This is my backing I chose.

The last 2 days I have been also  working on my VINTAGE ROUGE  QUILT 6 MONTH  SEW ALONG.

This is my progress so  far on  Block  month  # 1  and # 2.
 So much fun to make these blocks and Doreen's tutorials are so  helpful

Gardening and Binding ......

  I have been tending to the gardens alot this last week.  It has been in the high 80's here all week so that means watering first thing in the morning.  With the heat the hydrangeas are starting to bloom

 My gardenia also starting blooming . I wish you could smell them
 We also have 2 vegetable gardens and have been eating zucchini . The tomatoes are almost ripe . Oh have I love this time of year eating fresh vegetables .
I also have been trying to finish binding my Maison De Garance  hot cross quilt.  It has been just too hot to work on it at night but I do have 2 sides done  .
