As you know from my grand plan in week 1, I'm not making the pieced blocks for the Happy Flower Quilt-A-Long so I feel a bit of a fraud calling this weeks block 'a block' as all I had to do was choose just one fabric for a fussy cut block. There was no appliqued block this week. If you're wondering I do have a plan for the pieced blocks, but more of that another day. I've been loosely following the colours in the original quilt, so for my first 'fussy cut' block I chose a pretty floral from Lecien Flower Sugar collection, which is available HERE. It's quite a large scale print, so I do think it is a good opportunity to show it off!
I used 3 Sisters Pink for the sashing, which it is, my intention to use for all the blocks. Unfortunately as I type, we are currently out of stock (sorry!!), we had lots of orders for it back in week 1 and we're currently awaiting a big restock. Normally this happens quite quickly, but I've been advised that Moda are also awaiting a big restock...eeeeek! I will of course let you know as soon as it arrives.
In the meanwhile, I thought it would be nice to see the four blocks I have made so far together.
Next week, I'll be back to an applique block, which is a particularly nice one..can't wait! The hashtag for social media is #happyflowerqal ...if you fancy a peek!
