Quilt Blocks and Tea Cosy

Tidying up my photos today and found another group of cards etc that I have not shared with you.  So I am busy uploading and scheduling now.   When I saw this block I knew this was the post for today since it is Valentines Day.  Hope you are all enjoying your day although it is just like every other for my husband and I as we don't tend to do anything special.  I believe it's a big marketing ploy and I have 364 days or 365 days in this year to tell my husband I love without waiting for Valentines Day.

Now these blocks are all from 2015 and I have sent them off to my partners for the Craftmad Quilt Block Swap.  Sadly, I can't remember what the block pattern names are.  This block headed to Beth down in South Australia who requested pastel pink, green, lilacs and cream.

Mrs A in the UK should have this in her collection.  Mrs A asked for shades of pink, burgundy and cream.

This one headed to Mandy down in South Australia.  Mandy asked for Jungle and Tropical Brights.

Cathy in South Australia asked for black and white with a splash of one bright rainbow colour.

During 2014 our local museum had its Inaugural Tea Cosy Competition which I had great plans on entering but of course ran out of time.  2015 our second Tea Cosy Competition and once again I was determined to enter however, left it till the last moment but did whip this patchwork quilted tea cosy up.  These photos show both sides.  I should really start on another for this year now. 

Thanks for passing by, wishing you a beautiful day.

  2. Such diversity Merry, each one has it's own attributes and difficult to choose a favoutire.


  3. All are so lovely, I would find it hard to choose a favourite,but I could be pushed to the burgandy and cream, very sriking...
    I agree with you about valentine's, why bother going all out for one day, do something nice all the time...xx

  4. Fabulous blocks and tea cosy Merry..Loz

  5. All so differenr and totally wonderful, I love the heart.
    Thanks so much for the link to Beccy, not seen her store before and yes totally right for me! The phrase sticky beak isn't used in the UK but my Australian friend introduced it to me when she visited, so I understood!

  6. Hats off to you Merry...they must have been so much hard work

  7. Beautiful patches there - the jungle colours are most appealing for me. And even more is the black and white with orange which is very striking and eyecatching.

    For Valentine's day, I made cookies with my younger one and I made cards for the girls and gave them heart shaped chocolates as gifts. That was about it as hubby and I are on silent treatment these days. Lol. I am laughing about it so that means I have come a long way.

    The tea cosy is super cute and I do hope you manage to submit your cosy in time.

    Lots of love,
