It's a finish!
Blind Man's Fancy Tea in the Rose Garden
90 x 90
The block is Blind Man's Fancy. I used a free pattern by Beth Donaldson.
I used lots of rose and tea themed fabrics so that is why I called my quilt Blind Man's Fancy Tea in the Rose Garden.
Lots of hand quilting and a scrappy binding. What are the odds that part of the scrappy binding would end up next to a Flying Geese sashing in the same fabric? That happened in two places.
I wish I could show you some photos of roses in my rose garden but the deer must have had them on the menu this week because after rains for a couple of days I went out and found all my rose buds gone and most of the rose bushes eaten down to the ground. I saw three little Bambis out there in the middle of the day making a bleating sound. They may be the culprits. Usually I don't see deer in the middle of an afternoon. I didn't know deer made any bleating sounds so looked up and found that may mean they have lost their mother. If only they would lose their appetite!!
This is a Wild Rose which is the state flower of Iowa. Actually it is an invasive weed but I just let this one grow where a fairy planted it over in a shady area near the barn under some trees where not much else grows. Deer evidently don't find them as delicious as my cultivated roses.
Well, back to the quilt. This is the pieced backing.
Look closely and you will see women at a tea party! I bought this fabric a long time ago when Hancock Fabrics was going out of business and finally found the perfect use for it.
Getting this to the finish line was my June OMG (One Monthly Goal) so at the end of the month I will link up to the finishing party at Elm Street Quilts.
