The cousins have returned home to Sweden and it is back to the routine here.  It was a wonderful and inspiring week.  It is always great to look at your city through the eyes of guests who have not seen it before.

A fun and exciting week is ahead. My Swedish cousins are coming to visit.  Lots of touring, but not much blogging.  I will catch up with more quilting and photos after the visit.

Today I went to the annual Macy's Flower Show. The theme was the Secret Garden.  The colors and scent of the flowers was extremely pleasant.  It was a great time as I went with two wonderful friends. We topped off the afternoon with lunch and a piece of Frango Mint Pie.

I took one photograph that would be fun to make into a small wall hanging.  The door and key to the Secret Garden.

The quilt for my new great niece, ready to be sent out for quilting. Those dark squares are an Aunt Grace dark lavender.  But they photographed darker.

I am always looking for inspiration for quilting in my photography
These beaches houses are located on the sound between Denmark and Sweden.

Here are some of my quilts that have been made by me for my quilt guild for the Community Quilts projects. They go to various organizations for people in different times of need.

This would be a good thing to do with scraps

Some fun mod colors

                Great use of neutrals. Remind me of a hobo quilt pattern.
Summer fun

                               This is a real 1930's pansy pattern
Two inch squares.

 Using textures is something I have not tried, but would be fun to learn.
I have some sock monkey fabric to use. This would work well.
