Block 7 - Flowers of Love + New BOM + Some News ......


It's the 1st of the month again - Golly that was quick wasn't it? So that means it's time for another block in my "Flowers of Love" Quilt.  This is Block 7.  You can download it from HERE.  Just 2 more blocks to go and then the finishing instructions.  I am sending the completed quilt top off to the quilter this week so will be able to show it to you really soon.



Baby Isabelle was born on Sunday night weighing in at 7Llbs 8 Oz.  Mum and baby doing very well.  I will post some pics of her really soon.  She is a real little darling and has to be woken to feed - Let's hope that lasts.



 Today is the day that our new "Things We Love" BOM is launched over at the gumtree's blog.  This is going to be a gorgeous quilt.  The beauty of this BOM is that we are encouraging you to do your own thing.  No rules apply with this scrappy quilt.  You can choose to stitch or applique which ever bits you like.



The first block has been designed by our lovely Jenny and is entitled "A Happy Home"  Here is my version.  I am using a charm pack of "Giddy" which is in quite bright colours - Different to what I normally use.  I am loving how the blocks are coming up. 



Life is very busy for me in all departments at the moment so I just have to keep reminding myself to stop and smell the flowers - Just like little Maddie.

Love and Hugs,

Fee XX
