Paper hen and Sweet Flower

I have been quite busy those past weeks, and I have some great news like a new Etsy shop for my embroidery patterns. But before, I would like to introduce 2 new blocks. The sweet flower is the second block of my 2013 BOM, it is available separately in my shops
 I have created it to fit my Sweet Heart block. It's an easy block providing a stunning effect. it is scrap friendly as it is also beautiful with different fabric for each petal.

And this is my Paper hen block. I love origami and I wanted a block for a japanese inspired quilt for my younger son. I think HST plus the colour selection achieve pretty well this goal. You might think it's a serious quilt for a baby... He already has a bunch of "baby" quilt and I wanted a quilt he could use as wall hanging when he will be a man. I hope he will still like it :-)

 This Paper Hen block is very easy and quick to sew. I have had a lot of fun with this one. I hope others will enjoy it too! The pattern is available here.
I will come back soon with news of my embroidery patterns!
