Quilt Me Club part 2.

Fortunately it is sunny here today and I was able to take photos of the three blocks.  Working on these blocks was quite a challenge as I had decided to work with a totally different color palette. Yet,  inspired by the model, I used a floral fabric for 2 blocks... lots of thinking and fabric auditioning before finally starting cutting and sewing.

Anyway, I am having fun and I find this challenge quite rewarding as I like the result so far.

The appliqué block is really cute with the cat playing with a milk can... When I look at this block, images from a not-so-long-ago time at my grandparents' come to my mind. And as is often the case for me, memory comes back with smells and sounds... I can still smell the delicious aroma of a cake in the oven and the birds chirping outside with the cat trying to catch one of them.

 
 

The second block brings back fond memories too... when we went out for a picnic. In my family, picnic time meant summer, day at the beach on the Atlantic coast. And we usually had homemade quiches, sandwiches and  cakes. We had fruit cordial with water to drink and the adults had a good bottle of wine in the basket ;-)

 
 

By the way, don't you like the beautiful stitch that makes the words look so beautiful ? It's called felt stitch. It was new to me and I love it!!! I think I am going to use it in other projects.

The third block is a pieced one. I have used it to create some kind of balance and harmony with the blocks in part 1 using fabrics I had used in both part 1 and  2.  I  like how it turned out very much.
What do you think ? Do you like it too ?



 But I am sure you would like to have a look at all the blocks together, wouldn't you ? Well, here there are!

 

 And now, keeping with my one-thing-at-a-time resolution, I have decided to start part 3 immediately. I have already chosen the fabrics I will use but will probably change what's written and the medallion... but not sure yet what to do instead. Surprise....surprise...

Thank you all for the comments on my previous posts and welcome to all my new followers.
