Really off the Wall

I am still so excited to announce that I have a quilt in the upcoming "Inspired by the Beatles an Art Quilt Challenge" book! It is available for pre-release orders at Amazon. Which means I really should preorder my copy!

This week has been busy and I have gotten a lot done on an art quilt, but I am not ready to show it publicly so for this week's Off the Wall I am posting photographs of the weeds, er, um wildflowers from my "nature-scaped" backyard.

My herb garden is doing ok, still needs some weeding and trimming. I love my chives!

I cut all the blossoms to make chive blossom vinegar. Even after only a couple of hours the color is leaching from the flowers! I made some last year, it is great for making vinaigrette. Has a nice oniony taste and a lovely color. Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Woohoo! Congratulations! All my weeds are wildflowers too! I've never made a flavored vinegar. That looks yummy!

  2. That'll be an interesting book!

  3. Can you show the best!secant you show the Beatles quilt? I'd love to see it. I am of a certain age that the Beatles were a huge part of my life - first kiss, first love, first sex - all involved Beatles songs in some way.
    Great idea for a book and challenge. What would I do, hmmm let me see - blackbird is my favorite song but I really do have some fond memories of "why don't we do it in the road" I think I would do that one. What did you make?

  4. oh, I have just wanted to be outside this week, with slightly cooler weather and the porch cleaned off and flowers. I never heard of chive vinegar. So pretty. Congrats on the book! LeeAnna Paylor

  5. Congrats on the book! That's so exciting!
