My Garden is in disarray!

You may very well ask where have I been!  Having a panic attack and trying to sort my garden.  In a tired moment (never trim blocks at night)  I trimmed three of my down in the garden blocks,  BUT TO THE FINISHED SIZE.   What a panic and I didn't have any churn dash fabric left.  But I knew I would never be happy if I didn't pull these apart and recut and sew along with restitch!  I then had a memory of a fabric I thought I had used once which was similar to the Churn Dash Fabric, and yes upon looking in my scrap bags I found a similar fabric with larger spots but near enough for me.

So that is where I have been and not on blog land.  We are getting closer to being all stitched again and back to 15 1/2" .

  I have however had to stop to complete  "Fairyland" by Natalie Bird so my nearly 8 year old can receive at least all the finished blocks in her birthday package.  The last of  the blocks are here and the stitching is fun, look at the lovely bees!

Oh no, I hate it when that happens!
Your Fairyland blocks are beautiful, so bright and cheerful....
Happy stitching, Nicky

Yikes! That is such a pain when that happens, I have been known to turn the 'booboo' into a label for the back.
Beautiful blocks for both quilts.
