'florabunda' {a WiP}

The days of July have just flown by, and it's still wet, and it's still windy here. I'm kinda happy when it rains though, nothing nicer than staying at home & sewing on these really yukky wintery days.
My time this weekend was divided between making up more blocks, and *cutting up more scraps, for making up more blocks. Loving these dense clusters of flower blocks - who knew I had so many floral fabrics in my stash!


 Simple shapes & random colour surprises,
like this block using a little bit of Kaffe, Liberty, 'wild & free' from maureen c and a solid . . . 


Always interesting to check things out with a b&w pic . . .


and this is how it's looking in colour so far . . .


I stumbled across this quote on IG recently -
* "There's a great satisfaction in seeing a thing take shape and form under one's hands. 
Especially if they are made from oddments into something worthwhile."

  8. Such a pretty group of blocks! They look very cheery for a winter project! (Which feels strange to say when it is 97 degrees here!)

  10. I love the colours and the mix of patterns but what I also enjoyed this time was looking at all your centre squares and the way the placement of values can change the look of the block. Lovely work.

  11. Such a lovely quilt with a great mix of fabrics and colors. I like the way the diagonals and stars appear and disappear. The bird in the center of your first block is a delight.
