A Free Aussie Applique BOM and Giveaway

Funny how timely things can be.  Here I was today, having decided to add another project to my long list of UFO's.  I wanted to do an applique with different blocks.  I love the Baltimore quilts, but that is way out of my league right now.  I wasn't really finding anything that jumped out at me on line and was planning on going through my huge pile of books and magazines to see what I could find.  Tonight I see a post from a lovely Australian blog I follow, Mother's Cupboard.  Fiona has designed a Flowers of Love BOM.  It is a ten part project and by the looks of the first block promises to be really cute.  Definitely looks like something I can handle.  She is generously giving this BOM to us for free.  So nice of her!

Here is a look at block one:

Not only is Fiona giving us the BOM, to celebrate the launch of this project, she is also giving away a complete set of blocks and the fabric to complete nine blocks to one of her followers.  Click on the "Flowers of Love" button in my sidebar to check it out!

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring in Australia.  It is also the day my first grader starts school, and despite the outrageously hot weather we've had this week, fall is just around the corner here in the Northeast USA.  I think I will enjoy the Aussie spring vicariously through this project during our winter.  Won't you join me?

Until Next Time,
