Petunias and Diamonds

Just finished the petunia basket block for the Garden Club quilt.  I love how the Country Threads ladies designed the petunias.  They remind me of my grandma's garden when I was growing up. I still remember the smell of petunias in the warm summer sun.  The other big news is that our oldest daughter, Jamie, just got engaged!  She and Brian, her fiance, are so happy and we will be planning a wedding for next year!

I like those striped petunias. That is the only kind I would have any luck in growing.

Congratulations on the family engagement. We, too, are planning a wedding for next summer. Hope yours involves fewer complications than ours!

Congratulations to the happy couple! Your petunias look like the real thing - I can completely tell what they are. I love the Garden Club quilt. I've had the book for years but only made up a couple of the blocks as small finished quilts for gifts.
