Liberated Quiltmaking and Hup Holland!

First just letting everyone know that Tonya at LazyGalQuilting is doing an online poll on who wants to pre-order a second printing of Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking book. The publisher is trying to find out what kind of interest is out there for reprinting this book. Visit Tonya's blog today and vote today!

Next topic: Hup! Hup! Holland!

Holland wins again, this time against France! Below is my experiment of hexagonal piecing in Dutch Oranje fabric. I've hung it in my door window for the Euro cup. It's not finished, though.

This is just a photo of a wild flower I found growing in my garden. I've never seen this flower before and I am unsure how it got there. According to my Audobon's Guide to North American Wildflowers it would appear to be Yellow Goatsbeard or the closely related Meadow Salsify. Goatsbeard sounds more interesting to me.

More scrappy bargello progress, all the strips are cut, they just have to be sewn together. I have enough scraps to make a 5th panel...I will see how big this is when sewn together before I decide to make a 5th panel.

thanks for helping spread the word. I definitely knew there was a game on last night - lots of yelling in neighboring apartments.
