The English Country Garden BOM

So you might have seen a new BOM pop up over on Pennydog’s blog? No? Right down to basics… designed with scrappy and applique in mind. Open to all and oh yeah it’s on the theme of an English Country Garden. Each month a new pattern is released.

This month it’s all about the Daisy. Now I struggle with scrappy A LOT I need some form of continuity and symmetry in my life- it’s the mathematician in me but I seriously need to enhance my applique skills and try out stitches on my machine other than straight and zig zag…

Between work and welcoming my new niece in to the world this week I created this…



I might not have stuck rigidly to the pattern but this is me we are talking about?! I found some lace and went oooh pretty for a stem so added that. It’s also my first time with a blind hem stitch and it’s improving…

Think I’ll turn this into a cushion for the shop- what do you think? I haven’t got my quilt design set yet but I need to keep practicing.

Want to try this out then go over here to have a peek but hurry the Daisy pattern is only free until 5th May.

  1. Yey! Every time I see my button now though I can see the background fabric is screaming to be cut away under the white, but I was too eager to get the ball rolling! Did you find the instructions OK?
