Bluebell woods

We took time out today to visit Shrawley Woods in Worcestershire where the bluebells were in full bloom.
They have such a short season so it was good to discover such fabulous displays.
I love the way they give an impression of a purple haze.
There were lots of people enjoying the bluebells, taking advantage of a dry and reasonable sunny day following a very wet week and more rain forecast for tomorrow - but there again, it is a bank holiday!
On Saturday I taught a Cut and Come Again workshop for Malvern Quilters. They are an enthusiastic, fun group to teach and they produced some exciting collections of blocks that will hopefully be the starting point for some lovely quilts.
We decided that these blocks would benefit from sashing around each one as they were constructed from busy fabrics.
Pam grouped the blocks in fours and will sash around the units. It will be interesting to see what colour she chooses.
A feature fabric made this collection of blocks sparkle.
Apparently the group will have an exhibition next year so maybe some of these will have developed into quilts by then!
Hope you are having a relaxing weekend and thank you for dropping by.
