And, some not yellow, because I’m that kind of guy.
The yellow and orange bloom season is passing and the more varied color daylilies and sending up scapes and blooms. Even within the yellows and oranges, there are slightly different kinds. These are different, one with the ruffly leaves and one without, but both probably sharing a yellow gene that came from one of our other daylilies. There’s a third one that descended from a spider daylily and it is the exact same shade of yellow, but with a third variation in petal shape.
And, the same exists in the oranges. Same shade, but at least two different varieties within that.
So, with yellow on the brain, here are the 16 Dresden Plate blocks that I’ve been remaking.
Now, these 16 are back together, not looking a whole lot different than before in pictures, but looking a whole lot different in real life. They’re mounted to their yellow print backgrounds with a yellow solid center. I’m going to finishe piecing the quilt by hand, with sashing strips and cornerstones. The borders will be long strips of the background fabric and in the center of each strip, a half plate made from leftover wedges; and in the corners, squares, each with a quarter plate. I have plenty of leftover wedges. I started with 20 plates. But, in the others, there aren’t enough like prints for a whole plate.
After taking this photo, I will not be using this fabric as the cornerstones.
Talk about looking better in my head.
Anyway, now things that aren’t yellow.
I hope my Mom is reading and can tell me what this daylily is.
My grandmother grew Dahlias. I have tried and tried and tried and never gotten more than the most sickly single bloom. But, not this year. I finally found the right spot!
And, with that much color, you need a neutral, so how about a white flower. This was my Man-mom’s day gift from Sydney.
She does know what I like.
Everybody have a great Tuesday. Lane
