Welcome to week 4 of the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Blog Hop and the flower row week!
I think this is the best week! I have loved reading about all the other designers and their rows, but flowers are the best! Our task is to tell y’all about our favorite bouquets of all time.
Mary’s favorite flower is the Gerbera Daisy. I visited my local flower shop and tried to get a photo of a Gerbera Daisy but it seems they must be out of season or that she is possibly the only one in the world that likes daisies. Maybe Doris Day just ate them all!
Anyway, you will now have to be entertained and dazzled by my favorite bouquet. My favorite bouquet just happens to be whichever one is the newest. I have actually loved all the bouquets I have received because I have purchased them all myself!
Yep that’s right! All the flowers that I have ever received in my life were from me to me! My dear husband, bless his heart, is a very practical man. I knew when I married him 37 years ago that my chances of ever getting flowers were zilch. But I have a great collection of blenders and crock pots on the top shelf in my pantry.
So when this blog theme arrived in my inbox, I was up to the task of buying myself flowers again! So I went in search of my favorite bouquet on a rainy Phoenix day …
This is the one I chose …
I usually go for simple flowers in wild and colorful bunches like these …
But when I saw these buds with little “leaf” skirts I fell in love and knew I had found my newest favorite bouquet.
So that’s the story behind my favorite bouquet. I wish that I could show you our flower block, but I guess the whole point of a mystery is keeping it a secret. So you will just have to sign up for this wonderful block of the month and be surprised!
In case you don’t already know, this new block of the month features the beautiful fabrics of Joanna Figueroa and Fig tree Quilts.
The fabric group is called Avalon. I just love the navy blue in this group!
But most importantly sign up for the block of the month!
If you have never done a block-of-the-month club before, this is a great one to start with. Each month you’ll receive lots of fabric and lovely instructions to complete that month’s block. The quilt is suited for everyone, from beginners to seasoned quilters.
Footnote … My husband asked me where the flowers came from in the kitchen when he arrived home from work today. I went into this long explanation about the Fat Quarter Shop and needing a favorite bouquet to blog about. He just looked at me and very nicely said “why didn’t you just take a picture in the store?” He really is a nice guy and I love him … he’s just very practical!
