What is blooming here

  Everything has been blooming very fast. The tulips blew by in a couple of days due to a heat wave. I have not planted much in the ground because it is so hard and would have to be soaked a great deal. The colors have been outstanding and a joy to look at.
   I wish I could figure out how to make quilts with these photos. I do not like how fusible flattens out fabric. I just hate the thought of all that glue in the sandwich. Quilts that are at least 36 x 42. Not digital prints on fabric.

Pink Tree Peony
Magenta Tree Peony
Shrub Peony

Red Poppies!
Stello d'oro lilies
    And lastly, the fish are back outside in their pond instead of in the basement in a big pot.

You really do have a lot of blooming going on. I'll have to check on my lilies but I don't think they have bloomed yet.

You don't have to use fusible. I like to use free motion stitching to hold down non fused fabrics and leave the edges raw to ravel slightly.

Check out Ruth McDowell's pieced floral quilts. I think they are spectacular but made with a quite challenging process which I am attempting to learn.
