CORNFLOWER

The beautiful blue cornflower was adopted as the national symbol for MND..Motor Neurone Disease because of its fragile appearance but hardy nature. Like the cornflower, people with MND show remarkable strength in coping with this devastating disease. I decided to make this block for the GFBH2020 as it is so beautiful and has a powerful…

Have you had enough of flowers for one quilt, or would you just like some ideas to break up the design a bit? I’ve had a look online and found quite a few different free* patterns which may go well with the Garden Flower theme for this blog hop. Disclaimer: The designs for all of…

Hi and welcome to my first block design (exciting !). I joined this blog hop following an email I received from Craft Cotton Co (via UKQU). I am involved in writing tutorials and blogs for them and the shout out came for anyone who wanted to get involved in the Blog Hop and I thought,…

Are you enjoying all the different flower blocks and the different techniques used?  I’ve loved seeing them all. This is my second block and this time I had in mind summer days and daisy chains.  Do you remember school playtimes, sat on the field making bracelets and necklaces of daisies?  They were happy days and…

There is so much joy and delight in a flower garden. Gardeners work with nature to create an ever-changing display of beauty, and flowers are so beautiful and so transient. We want to celebrate them as they pass so quickly. How many of us can remember our mother’s flower garden with forget-me-nots, roses, chrysanthemums and…

Pixel Poppy

  The Poppy has been a symbol of remembrance, to those who served and lost their lives fighting for their countries, since 1920 and it is particularly important to me as my Great-Granddad Bill was one of those soldiers. Thankfully I had many years with him, but others were not so lucky and so I…
