Fabulous Flowers

Take a peek, I went LARGE on the flowers this month!

May issue of Popular Patchwork magazine out in the UK tomorrow promises plenty of patchwork inspiration. My quilt (on the cover) 🙂 features Anya prints from Monaluna including some sweet little owls and that lovely blue fabric I was drooling over. I used an EZ Simplicity Drunkards Path template to create the huge double petals. If you’ve never tried curves before, this might be the project for you to have a go. Big curves are easier!

We had a lovely day at Godinton House last Wednesday. As part of their Spring week event the gardens were laid out with a treasure hunt for families to wander round and discover eggs in amongst the daffodils and blossom. Each day there were craft projects for children which should have been in a marquee, storm Katie had other ideas so we set up in the education room. The weather was fine and sunny by mid week but families were happy to sit inside and craft after their walk. Children aged from about 3 years got to paint and patchwork. Glueing the hexies made EPP (English Paper Piecing) accessible to the younger children too.

It’s been a while since I’ve been part of a community project and it was fabulous to see the childrens enthusiasm for craft, such happy faces. I was also thrilled that the mums got a few minutes to sit and sew too 🙂
