On February 1st, the second block from this year's Pat Sloan Mystery BOM "My Secret Garden" was released. Because I was backed up on both work and quilting projects, I didn't get to it for a week or so, and was left drooling at everyone else's beautiful interpretations of this lovely block.
However, I did find the time to read Pat's blog post about her trip to Ireland (if you've ever dreamed of Ireland, you should read this post - you can find it in the link above) which was not only a great read, but also included truly magnificent photographs. I had been wondering what to do that would be special and unique in the centre of each block - and after reading Pat's post - it came to me. I have been hoarding a stunning specialty printed fabric called Spring in Paris, printed by Elizabeth's Studio; and the fabric is full of vintage Parisian landmark postcards, climbing roses, other flowers and butterflies. I am cutting elements out of the fabric and appliqueing them (in trapunto style) into the centre of the blocks (see large picture above). So far, I like the effect...
In our part of the world, winter has arrived with a vengeance and we are buried in snow...but V-Day is coming,
and that means chocolate!
Mystery BOM Fun with Pat Sloan!
