Free Pattern - Consider the Lilies Pattern 6

Saturday, June 18, 2011
It seems ages since the last instalment in the Consider the Lilies free Block of the Month pattern.  Maybe it's because an awful lot of things have happened in our lives in the last four weeks! A car accident and an Order of Australia Medal weren't on the To Do list, but we feel abundantly blessed through both of these significant events.

Pattern 6 is now ready for download on my website.

There's a little toadstool:

which is attached to a block of thin rectangles:


which is then attached to the little bird from last month to complete the lower half of the block.



Then there are a couple of sweet butterflies:


which will join on to April's block to complete the top half of the block:


Then you can join it all together:


to complete block 2 ...

and now you have the patterns for HALF the quilt.


You can join Blocks one and two if it makes you feel good!

I hope you are enjoying making this quilt as much as I am in sharing it with you.

We had a friend from interstate stay with us this week for five days, so there was very little sewing done. We were out in the beautiful Queensland winter sunshine for much of the time, enjoying spotting birds, revelling in the beautiful scenery and being constantly thankful for being able to live in my dream location.

I loved watching this little baby Australasian Grebe:

... was delighted to see a spectacular Regent Bowerbird:


... marvelled at how elegant the Black-winged Stilts are:


and found plenty of water in the waterfalls:


Hope your week is full of blessings too.

Happy stitching,
Val
