String Quilt Blocks


String quilt

This week-end was very busy with gardening, cooking and finishing the string blocks. They are now ready to be sewn, and I expect to receive the fabrics I ordered for the sashing and backing.

Gardenia

Tonight I baked a panettone for the quilting bee party tomorrow at home. Waiting for it to be cooked, I took this picture of the beautiful gardenia that my daughter offered me on the first of May. There are great smells in the kitchen : the gardenia flowers mixed with the smells of the brioche almost ready.

Panettone

I always have a little anxiety opening the stove, shall I have a bad surprise... no it's ok, it seems perfectly baked!

Panettone

We shall taste it tomorrow morning with a good cup of coffee. In the meantime I wish everybody a great Sunday evening!
