Several More Flowers

Block 4
We've been binge-watching Doc Martin on Netflix, so I've been able to get quite a bit done on the Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.

Blocks 5 & 6
I mentioned previously that I hoped to make each one unique, but already I've broken away from that. I kitted up many of the blocks, and failed to catch this copy.

Block 7
For some reason, I have quite a few of the orange centers, but will have to break away from that.

Block 8

Block 9
A couple of purple centers.

Block 10
And a green.

Helper Approving Finished Flowers
My quality control inspector seems to be happy with the work in process so far. See the black furry cat behind the pillow? He is sleeping in front of the window. 

Mr. California Stitching left this morning for New Haven, to help our son move to Seattle for a new job, and the little ones have decamped for California with their parents. So I should be able to get quite a bit done in the few days before Christmas. 


  1. Good to know the inspector approves!

  2. What a wonderful photo of your helper, there! A new quilt lover in the making, I think. :D

    You are making great progress too. Happy Christmas!

  3. How are you going to manage finishing your blocks with your helper out of town? I'm sure that he will be missed for more then his "quality control" skills.

    I love the quilt the young man is sitting on as well. Very pretty colours.

  4. I just love the colors you've put together, really soft but still lively. Is this all hand stitched? They look perfect.
