Cup of Flowers Anyone?


In just under 2 weeks I am going away on a sewing weekend with the girls to country Victoria.  Seven of us are going to take part in “Girl’s Day Out” with Melly Hurlston, Rosalie Quinlan and Leanne Beasley.  I am sure we are going to have a hoot, and I really can’t wait.

The patchwork shop that runs this event (Country Thyme) has asked that we all bring a block to be made up into quilts that will be raffled as part of the “Biggest Cuppa Tea” Charity event for the Cancer Council.  The theme for the block is Pink, Yellow and White, and you can see above what I have made.  It gave me a chance to try raw edge applique, and I am really pleased with it.

After I had finished and pressed the block I re-read the instructions and realised that I had missed reading one tiny word – flowers.  It was written with the Pink, Yellow and White, where the theme was discussed.  I am hoping that the  floral fabric will be enought to tie it in because I don’t have more time to redo it.

Oooops – made any crafty mistakes lately?

  1. This will be like a bit of ‘flower relief’…. it’ll blend in but not too much.

    I hope you know what i mean…. I’ve only just woken up…. where’s another cup of coffee….?

  2. Gorgeous pattern Claire! I would love a teapot like that – thanks for the Red Letter Day info – bloggers are always helpful! Sounds like it’s going to be a wonderful time away.

  3. I agree with Debbie. I’m sure they’ll love it. I do! I’d better pull my finger out and get started on my block. Only 11 more sleeps until we go! Can’t wait.

  4. How exciting. Guess what Im heading up on the Sat, with my mum just for the day… What day are you booked in for?
    Love the block, so cute.
