Hollyhock Flowers

A few weeks ago my husband asked it this was a weed. Of course the hollyhocks was not blooming. There are three different colors. It is very pretty against the garage.

Yesterday I took an applique class. We made this fall table runner. I still need to finish the applique. It was fun and hopefully my applique skills will improve.

I am working on these blocks for a baby quilt. I plan to hand quilt hearts in the solid white squares. I used mini charm blocks for the 4-patches. I still have lots of rows to sew together.

I also have been working on my H2H quilt. I will post the finished quilt on Sunday.

Let's go Sarah's and check out what everyone else has been working on.



  1. The hollyhocks are beautiful. I'm glad your husband didn't cut them down as weeds!
    Your appliqued runner is going to be nice. You'll enjoy it this fall - maybe for Thanksgiving?
    The baby quilt is going to be really nice! I like the idea of the hand quilted hearts. What a lucky baby!!

  2. the applique runner is really nice...I love fall colors...and I really love the baby quilt!

  3. You've been busy! I love your flowers - so glad your husband asked before he pulled them out as weeds - my hubby pulled up my clematis for three years before I caught him at it! Your applique looks great, and the baby quilt's going to be adorable! Whoop whoop!!

  4. Hollyhocks are such great old fashioned flowers..I love them! The table runner is going to be beautiful:)

  5. I haven't seen or thought about Hollyhocks in years, yet I love them! They remind me of my childhood home. Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers.
