BOM 35 - Winter Blossoms

Winter Blossoms
 I just love those blossoms that appear towards the end of Winter .. cherry blossoms and others. I suppose the Japanese fabric suggested the title for this one. Oh it isn't that hard a block ... give it a try.

2016 South Bay Quilters Guild

I was contacted a short while ago by Sue Glass who is the quilt show chair for the 2015 and 2016 South Bay Quilters Guild of Torrance California.  

For their 2015 show, the challenge was 12 ½ inch red and white blocks, and one of those submitted used my block “Patrice’s Gift” from the Quiltmaker 100 blocks magazine.

Since then they  decided to use those challenge blocks to make their 2016 opportunity quilt, which is really lovely (red and white of course). The quilt will travel around the Southern California area and be displayed at their quilt show. 

I just had to share the photo. Isn't it a beautiful quilt. Patrisse's Gift is the second block from the top on the right hand side, just below the 's' in quilters. What an honour.

Collection 34 - Where Did That Name Come From?

Collection 34

I always think of an English Garden as a subtle restful place with delicate flowers here and there.

Paul loves gardening and could spend forever there ... even at night with stars in the sky if able :-)
White Wall Tiles

The lime green in this block looked as stark as White Wall Tiles in a new building. Funny it doesn't look as stark in the finished quilt.
Follow Your Heart

Yes I know the saying once in a blue moon. At the time this block was made there were so many once in Blue Moon events that I had to make a series of them.

The long strips in Solid Gold appeared a lot more definite in the finished block than they did in the design.
Through the Roses

Which is the maze, the pink roses or the green path that meanders Through the Roses?

Well of course you will all immediately guess where I was when I made Champs Elysee Alight and what I'd been up to the previous night ... Paris is beautiful. I'm so glad PJ studied there for a few years.
