What's on the line?

The little quilt "on the line" today is so sweet...........
I bought it at PJ's Scoops, the ice cream place here in Henderson. Almost forgot that I bought it as I picked it up sometime back in March when winter was hanging on forever. It was a nice reminder that spring and flowers would eventually return.  I don't know who made the quilt but it's all hand-appliqued and hand-quilted. Measures about 20 x 24 " and it was only $10! Could not believe the price when I saw the handwork on it. Scooped it up right away! ;-)  It's hanging on the line in this photo but it's "in house" spot is hanging on the wall in our family room off the kitchen. It would be easy to make a little quilt like this as the flowers are just appliqued circles with a small applique for the center. The pots are all cut form the same fabric. Very cute and these flowers will never wilt.
I can't say the same about the real flowers that I planted yesterday. We finally got some large pots for our front porch and I added flowers to them and also some more pots with half-price bedding plants. It all looks really pretty and I can only hope that I will water them right and they will continue to grow. I'll get some photos later this week and let you know if all the pretty petunias are growing or wilting. :-)  It was fun to play in the dirt and plant real flowers. I'm pretty good at decorating with artificial flowers but you really cannot beat the beauty of the real blossoms. And the scent of real flowers is really sweet.........just like this little quilt!
It's the start of a good week..........Enjoy it!
