Everything is 3 weeks to an entire month earlier than usual due to the mild winter. I am behind and the garden is way ahead of me. Thanks goodness, yesterday I was able to hire a young man to do some major pruning to some trees that are becoming overgrown. He agreed to come and rototill my vegetable garden Saturday. I usually dig it myself. I have four 4'x8' patches that I do a day at a time. What a relief to be getting it all done in less than an hour. I may get my vegetables in on Saturday as well.
Lotti, When I was a kid all this berry picking was a family affair with cousins and aunts joining in and now it is just me. I would certainly welcome you to my garden anytime you can come. You can eat, cook and visit. When will you be here? Summer of 2013 would be fine. Its a straight line south from your family to central PA.
Rita, Gyleen's flower garden layout with 2 leaves attached to the flowers comes from her antique quilt collection she gathered for the book that was featured on the TQS episode when she was the guest. I don't think it is in the book but she posted it on facebook when I requested help for a layout. I am so interested in that quilt. I need a name appropriate for its history. The pattern is from the 1930's. I began collecting the fabrics for it in the 1970's -80's to present day. It's totally machine constructed and I plan to quilt it with machine techniques quilter's are developing now in the 21st Century. Hope you all feel free to help finding that name.

That's because I don't want to emphasize where one block stops and the next one starts. That's not a rule that is just my design choice for this quilt. Have fun with the quilting.
