Garden Mystery Blog Hop

Wow! It has been a long time since I blogged.. so sorry friends! Not sure if anyone out there is still following my blog??? 
Rhonda of Farmhouse Threads has asked me to design a block for her Garden Mystery Quilt

Today is my day! March 30, 2018. 

I went for a visit with Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings a few weeks ago.. I started laughing because she had designed a wheel barrow just like the one I was planning on making for this Mystery Quilt.. her design was so dang cute! I made her help me design another block since she had an earlier release date.. here is what we came up with!
