BLOCK of the MONTH
FIVE
Designed and Created by Donna

This block introduces a new block technique called "Flying Geese" whilst building on the previous techniques of
"Half Square Triangles" (HST's) and piecing. This block can be personalised by fussy cutting meaningful fabric
for the windows and doors. My windows reflect the woods around me ideal for walking and the flora and
fauna to be found in (and eating!) my garden. Hand embroidery or applique can also be used to personalise this
block further....as will be seen when these blocks are brought together in the final Sampler Quilt.

DMBOTM6
BLOCK of the MONTH
SIX
Designed and Created By Donna

This Months BoM is all about Fabric Manipulation to give an old favourite Log Cabin a modern day twist. Using
a folded patchwork technique a 3D Pin Wheel forms the focal point of a Log Cabin block. Don’t fancy folding
fabric but would still like to make a Log Cabin? No problem there instructions inside to cover both options.
Traditionally the central piece of a Log Cabin is Red to represent the Heart or Hearth. An alternative to this is
Yellow to represent the “Sunshine through the window”   Alternatively you could add a modern spin and go for
a Rainbow!

It also provides you with the opportunity to Fussy Cut a central block to showcase your fabrics or a piece of
embroidery. Speaking of showcasing you could use vintage tray cloths and embroidered handkerchiefs to
include them in something modern and get them out of drawers!

BLOCK of the MONTH
SEVEN – Basket of Love
Designed and Created By Donna

This Months BoM is an On Point Piecing and Applique combination. The comprehensive photo instruction guide
takes you step by step through the process of creating this block the 7th of  9 in our Sampler Quilt series.

Like previous blocks there is room to personalise this block, you could stop at the on point piecing and produce
a block with an “empty” basket. Or continue by adding “contents” to your basket using applique,  I’ve added
Hearts on flower stems but you could easily adapt it to contain spools of thread, scissors, a picnic, or cakes J
What will you fill your basket with ? we’d love to see your finished results.
