Happy Flower Quilt-A-long Week 2

Gosh didn't week 2 come around quickly!  Following on from last weeks post where I layed out my plan for the Happy Flower QAL, here's my second block from the Sampler pattern in the fabulous Happy Flower Quilts / Sew Flower Quilts and Gifts book by Atsuko Matsuyama.

Even though some of the applique's were a little small, I was still able to use the Interfacing method of applique for them!  I took my steer for the colour choices from the original quilt in the book and was particularly pleased with the Lecien Flower Flower fabric I chose for the main flower, the design really lends itself to be fussy cut, don't you think?

These are the fabrics I used this week:

Lecien Fabric ~ Antique Flower Pastel ~ Tiny Rose Bud White, which is available HERE
Lecien Fabric ~ Flower Sugar ~ Doily Floral Red, which is available HERE
Lecien Fabric ~ Old New 30's ~ Strawberry Green, which is available HERE
Moda Fabric ~ The Cookie Exchange ~ Bakers Twine Grass, which is available HERE
Moda Fabric ~ Windermere ~ Gingham Lake, which is available HERE

If you haven't already got it, the fabulous book is available HERE

I look forward to sharing my blocks with you and don't forget to take a peek at the  #happyflowerqal ...there are already some very gorgeous blocks to be seen!

Happy stitches!


  1. What a cheery block! Those fabrics are so summery to me amid my still winter landscape.
