Wild Wednesday

National Garden Clubs Inc has designated the first week of June, 2012 as National Garden Week.  This is the time to celebrate the joy of gardening – so plan to check out your local gardening club or take a tour of some community gardens in your area.

Today’s wild things include the various colors of crape myrtles that are bursting into bloom all over my area.  Here are some of my favorites:


Dark Pink
And my quilty wild thing today is actually very patriotic.
Fabrics I selected for the Mystery Quilt
It’s the mystery part of it that’s wild.  I will be participating in Persimmon Quilts’ Mystery Quilt of Valor #24 that begins on June 9th and will end on July 14th.

A Mystery Quilt is presented in steps that are given out periodically on-line and you won’t know what the quilt will look like until you’re almost finished – What a hoot!  You will be given the dimensions of the finished quilt and all of the fabric requirements up front.  The requirements for this Mystery are available now.
Persimmon Quilts has been an amazing friend to the Quilts of Valor Foundation and has sponsored 23 free QOV mystery quilts in the past.  Please visit their site if you’ve ever thought of making one of the Quilts of Valor.  You’ll be glad you stopped by!
Fabrics are cut for the first step and waiting for June 9th!
