Isabel's baby quilt done!

Bellies yellow quilt

I finished machine quilting the yellow quilt I am making for Isabel. Here is a picture or two. It is in the washer getting the blue marks out now, then I will lay it out to block before I square it up and add the binding. I am happy with my progress. The stitches are about the same length and my tension is right on. Just practice and patience to be where I want to be.
I will post pictures of the finished quilt.
Here is a picture of my garden. It is having a heat attack this afternoon, so it looks a little droopy.


This is about half the length of the garden. North of the corn is the strawberry bed and the grape vine and the area I used for the spring garden, about 20 feet.
The green beans haven't produced enough to pick. I am disappointed with them. There are blooms on them now. I will wait to see what they produce. We installed the electric fence around the corn on Friday. We hope this will keep the raccoons out.
Have a great day!
