Brunnera Flower Block

Brunnera is a flower in the Boraginaceae family or more commonly known Forget-me-not family. As with most flowers, there are many species of Brunnera. The best known is Siberian bugloss. Its interesting heart-shaped leaves grabbed my attention so I decided to make a new flower block.

Christmas Block-a-thon block 2

Posted by on 20 January 2020 | 2 Comments

Tags: , ,

For this week's blog, I decided to play with EQ8 to design my own block. It's easy to start with a block and move some lines around however it is always best to start with the size you intend using so you don't get funky cutting instructions. For example, if you want a 12" finished block, don't play with a 5-patch block. On the other hand, a 6" block would be fine because you can double it to make 12".

Down on the Farm - Ducks

I spent Christmas down on the farm at my daughter's place in North Canterbury. It's such a different lifestyle than the big city! It reminded me of my Country quilt I made a number of years ago "A Day in the Country" which is not only a BOM series but also an online workshop.

Christmas Block-a-thon - Block 1

I know it is a bit late for thinking about making a Christmas quilt, but I figured if I started now, then I might have it done by 2020. You see, I just love Anita's Christmas quilt and the great thing about it is you can make blocks as you like then later put it all together. That's what I am planning on doing.

Last week I happened to be in our local craft store and found some oval hoops so I decided to grab a couple and start designing - of course, flowers came to mind.

It just occurred to me that I missed a post for October's flower! Fortunately, I have made this flower in my BOW flower series. It was one of the early flowers, the marigold.

Flower Blocks

This week instead of hoops I'm going to use canvas blocks. You can do the same thing with stretcher bars if you prefer. The biggest thing with these is to allow enough background fabric to go around the sides and over at least a good inch onto the back. Anything smaller and you will need to add additional fabric as I did with my pepper block.

The flower for August is Gladiolus - such a beautiful flower in so many colors. When I made my collection of flowers, I definitely included a gladys as we often call them, but this week I decided to make a second block using pink instead of my original red.

Autumn Colors Are Fun to Work With

So here is a preview of the quilt I've been working over the weekend. It is almost complete with only some quilting to finish off and if it had not been for the interruption, I would have finished it! It has taken me just 2.5 days to complete so a perfect weekend project.
