Snowballs...and other May flowers

Our weather has been pretty yucky, but thankfully no snow and no tornadoes, so I'm not complaining (too much) about the rain and wind. Despite cold rainy days, we have some lovely snowballs of the floral variety along the side of our house this year:


I've finished a couple more Flower Garden blocks that I started over the Mother's Day weekend.






















And I've been working away on Capriccio, too, and have a bigger stack of blocks now, but I don't think it will be completed by the end of May.


In fact, I'm thinking it needs to be a much bigger quilt than originally planned. If my memory is correct, the pattern calls for 30 blocks (5 x 6), but I am aiming at double that or larger (8 x 9), so this may remain a UFO for awhile....anyway, back to stitching!

What gorgeous snowballs!! How big are they?

And. . . I wondered if you'd be willing to link this post of yours up to my new BOMs Away Monday post, to show off your lovely Flower Garden blocks there, too? (here: http://whatahootquilts.blogspot.com/2011/05/boms-away-monday-2.html)
