String Me Along ...in the garden


   It is a beautiful morning, after  the stormy week of rain and hail and winds.  We have shade sails off the back porch and we have rushed to take them down at least 4 times this week.   Anyway, this morning seemed  just perfect to try a few outdoor photos.  I'm trying to improve, so bear with me.  
   How great is this shot?  The day lily on the quilt and the one in the garden....together. 

 

And detail shots...one of the lady bug on the leaf,  a hummingbird, and the turtle who has made a home in our garden. 


















Then a look at the back......with some of the left over string strips.  I had to piece together the backing anyway, so it was easy to insert the left over strings. 









I need to add a sleeve because this one is going up on the wall  for a while in the sun room.

Hope you enjoyed my garden quilt.
 Happy stitching.

I can't believe how fast you got that one done. It is so detailed. I'm glad you got a nice day to show its beauty outside! I love the comparison of the lilies too!

This is a beautiful quilt. What an inspiration! I love tue scrappy strips and little details and seeing the quilting in this light is wonderful.

It's lovely, it will look wonderful in any room :)) but a sun room sounds very special.
