In the September 6th issue of my Elefantz Home e-zine, I'm starting a new four-month Block of the Month.
But this BOM will be slightly different because each block will be a mini-quilt!
I won't reveal the finished mini quilt for the first month until next week, but I will give you a teaser today with some photos of the stitchery sections, and some of the fabrics I'm using...
"Seasons in Redwork"
~ block 1 'spring calling' ~
Block 1 begins in Spring, as this is the season to greet all Australians and those elsewhere in the Southern Hemisphere in September...
( In the October issue block 2 will be an autumn block in a mini quilt for my friends in the Northern Hemisphere)
There is something rather lovely about redwork, and I think it's obvious that I adore drawing birds to stitch, especially adding all the little extras to their raiment...
And of course the joy of these seasonal mini-quilts is being able to swap them around as you welcome a new season in your very special corner of the world!
These fabrics stood out as being 'just right' for the piecing around the blocks...
I'm loving this.
