January Tulips

Today was a dark, damp, dreary day, like days that we have every January.  That is not going to change without a radical move to a lower latitude, which I don't think is going to happen.

Of course, it is easy enough to surround yourself with flowers.


The sixteen tulip blocks, a simple nine-patch variation, were made yesterday afternoon.


Today, I sewed the blocks together with sashing and borders.


Pretty sure I am sensing an old-fashioned quilting bee in the near future to quilt this little garden.
