I drew most of the blocks a few months ago, and checked them out a few days ago.
I couldn’t help but play with the blocks for few minutes … or maybe it was hours.
First I had to remember how to turn a pieced block with squares and rectangles only into a quilt layout. (On the Electric Quilt quilt worktable select Quilt – Create quilt from Block …. check out page 56 of the manual.)
Then add blocks, and modify some to fit in corners, and make the leaves taller … and share on a blog!
When I am not being a real or virtual quilter I like getting my hands dirty in the garden. The Brunsvigia or Empress Lilly are stunning spring bulbs which are dormant during the winter months. Like the Easter Lilly the flower comes first … but they do not flower for ten years after planting the bulbs. At least I don’t have to wait ten years to see leaves.
I had them in my previous garden, and saw them flower just as I dug them out to move them to the new garden, and now I have to wait for the next first flowering.
At least I now have some virtual Brunsvigia without that ten year wait for the real deal!
