My Wonky Rose Garden is a Wrap

I've had so much fun making this quilt. It was mindless scrappy sewing. It doesn't get much better than that. A tutorial for making these funky roses can be found here.
I quilted roses in each of the roses and then leaves and vines everywhere else.
 I bound it with a blue fabric I found in my stash.
 I think it makes a lovely backdrop for my flower/herb garden. I'm lovin' how well my little garden has done this season and will be sad to see it go. I'm planning on bringing the herbs inside. I was fortunate enough to receive my grandpa's pots while cleaning out he and grandma's house. We are getting it ready to sell as grandma has decided it is time to go to a care center.
 I'm linking up with Sarah, Cynthia, Myra, and Amanda Jean to celebrate this floral finish.
