Friday check in: rhubarb and a flimsy


Thursday:  it was great to join AAUW, P.E.O., and GFWC friends for the last Clara Cummings Book Club luncheon of the season.   Lynn Rymarz presented another one of her Tales in History, this time as Hedy Lamarr who was not only an actress but a patent-holding inventor.   It's always a delight to see Lynn, a friend and P.E.O. sister. 

Our friend Mary Lou said I could pick all the rhubarb I wanted from her garden.  I took her at her word!

Each bag has three cups. Because it loses so much volume when it's defrosted, I need two bags for one pie. (Or one bag + one tub of strawberries, and that way we get more pies!)   

Our backyard rhubarb plants yielded about two cups' worth this year.   I've planted green beans, lettuce, and carrots.   We'll put tomatoes in this weekend.  

This week has alternated cool/rainy and warm/windy. I hope I can catch up on reports and minutes and other paperwork I've been putting off.

The blue/white four-patches are now a flimsy.  I had just enough of the red-brown print (Buttermilk Basin) for the border.   3-7/8 yds used. 

Linking up with Finished or Not Friday


  1. another dynamite flimsy nann! our farmer's market has only greens strawberries rhubarb as of now...anxious awaiting more

  2. I've been meaning to get our rhubarb picked and processed as well as make a dessert and rhubarb bread.

    I like your flimsy. I have a similar UFO but it was made with little nine patches.

  3. I like the 3-D effect of this quilt, looking through the trellis to the layer beneath.

  4. It's always a treat to read about your clubs. And oh, how I miss rhubarb.

  5. Fantastic quilt top Nann! Whoo-hooo on free rhubarb! Enjoy!

  6. Love the flimsy, four patches are my favorites and they chain across the quilt so nicely. Good job putting up all that lovely rhubarb. I will probably be cutting ours next weekend.

  7. Your four patch flimsy is really awesome!

  8. mmmm Strawberry rhubard pie......
    and your flimsy - I really like that one!! those blocks are really cool!
