NOTE! Because of the colours chosen for this quilt I have decided that it would be best to stipulate where the "lights" and "darks" should be placed in the blocks for this one. I think it will make it easier to put it together with a pleasing result. Please put your "darks" in the centre square and the four corner squares.
Country and earthy colours -
barn reds, greens, ochres, blues.
sand, latte, bright blues, navy
The family has an interesting story with regards to the middle names and I thought it worth sharing with Blaine's sister's permission. In her words -
(including my 3!). So Henry and Lou also have the middle name Flower.
I think that is a wonderful story and oh boy! What gutsy stock this family comes from!
A reminder- And just before I go and you start pulling fabrics for your blocks - if you have posted off a quilt or laundry bag this week can you please make sure I have the photos. So far I have Kaye, Fran, Cherie, Chris, Christine and Julie Ann's quilts and Caroline's laundry bags. I am sure that some have slipped through in the madness that has been happening in my email over the last week so PLEASE just email me again!
Till next time.............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
