English Country Garden Quilt Along - Block 1 now available


The time has finally come to start tending to our English Country Garden Quilts!


Early on in the first UK lockdown of March 2020, I ordered a Bee friendly wildflower seed mix and scattered it in a small area of my new vegetable patch.  Lots of lovely wildflowers grew and I was thrilled when the poppies arrived! 

I kept getting small glimpses of red amongst all the green foliage of my sunflowers, tomatoes and beans and they brought a smile to my face!  (I’m sad that I didn’t take any real photos of the garden last year ☹) 

You can just catch a glimpse of one of the poppies here in this photo from one of my Christmas in July posts:

You can read the blog post about that here

Anyway, I digress – Here is the first instalment – The Poppy Wreath Block!

It is available for instant download now! 

The block pattern includes print at home EPP templates and step-by-step photographs for making your own Poppy Wreath block.  Follow the progress using #countrygardenqal on Social media to see all the beautiful blooms as they appear!

Happy Stitching!

p.s. I really couldn’t get the Blue & White colour combination out of my head and couldn’t resist making a Poppy wreath block from my Blue scraps…what do you think?  Let me know in the comments xx
