Summer in the Country

A warm, summery welcome if you're joining me from the Moda Bakeshop website today. This summer the Bakeshop chefs have been sharing blocks...

...inspired by relaxing with friends on a lazy summer afternoon, porch swings, iced tea and laughter, Summer in the Country is here...

I decided to take my hosts a Summer Basket full of bright flowers made with the deliciously vintage Back Porch fabric, designed by Me & My Sister Designs.

A country summer definitely says 'flowers' to me and I'm spoilt for choice in my own garden at this time of year. I really loved the 1930s feel of the fabric Moda chose for the sewalong this year and I could easily see this block blooming into a vintage quilt with sunny sky-blue sashing.

You can find the instructions for my block - along with more summery blocks and settings created by my fellow chefs - on the Bakeshop website throughout this month.

And if you're sewing along do share your blocks with fellow sewalong participants on Instagram. You'll find lots of inspiration and encouragement there!

Wherever you're sewing, enjoy summer in the country.
