Putting it simply, I simply adore Jen Kingwell's (Amitie) talent for quilt and pattern making.
Jen's new Block of the Month quilt 'Bring Me Flowers' is yet another fine example of her gift for combining sometimes wacky but always wonderful fabrics to create delightful quilt blocks, sent out and received each month with great anticipation on my part!!!
Month two has arrived and is in progress! Such gorgeous fabrics including Liberty's, yum.
And in case you are wondering, I am still slowly working on Jen's Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt. Another classic pattern that can now be purchased as a pattern from Amitie here. Laying them all out like this makes me realise I have actually completed quite a few blocks now. These are being stitched using the hand piecing method and needle turn applique, as are the above 'Bring Me Flowers' blocks.
I'm not in a rush to get these done, I love having some hand work to pick up and put down whenever the mood takes me, so keeping them on hangers will mean they won't get deep creases in them from months of being folded.
Well, the sun is finally shining, so I'm going to go and soak up a few winter rays! Have a gorgeous weekend everyone. xo
