Fall Posey Patrol

Our backyard looks like death right now. The drought has really taken a toll on the plants. We've just had the trees trimmed, making the yard look bare. But fall/winter means citrus and the grapefruit, lemon, lime and Satsuma tangerine trees are all doing well. I managed to find a few flowers in the yard, too.
A bright light in the Fall Posey Patrol is my Posey Patrol quilt from my friend, Dana's book, Imagine Quilts. All the blocks are finished and ready to be sewn together. I took this photo as the blocks were all lying on the floor and then edited it with the perspective app. It cut off the corners, but you can see the 8x10 layout pretty well.

I'm hoping to get this one finished and ready for quilting by the weekend.

I love your blocks, it will be a wonderful quilt. And we have snow, not citrus trees, I am very jealous of your beautiful yard, trimmed back even.

Your Posy Patrol is going to be lovely! And what a great name too!

Our yard is sad sight these days too. And we are in the middle of getting a new roof so there is dirt on every surface and leaf. Did I ever tell you I bought the book after admiring your Posies? The quilt will have to wait til I retire but it's on the list.

Just spent a couple of hours in our yard trimming and spraying for aphids. It looks better now.

I wish I could send you some rain in exchange for some citrus!

I don't know when my citrus will be bearing (does it take two or three years? I should have asked you that one!) so it is great to see your lovely "quilt" of garden images.

Your posey quilt is fabulous, especially because I've seen the blocks and know how they look in person (and did I ever tell you I was completely impressed with how you sewed those blocks without pinning?). It will be fun to see it take shape.
