Block 45 Aunt Mary's Favorite - The Childless Wife

The story for this week of the Childless Wife and the negativism she encountered was not one I wanted to dwell on. Instead I focused on the name of the block - Aunt Mary's Favorite.

This project will have stories and patterns for 49 blocks provided so as we near the end I am trying to look back at what I have done and see if there are fabrics that need to be used again. The sweetness of the toile fabric seemed to be a good fit for Aunt Mary and I have only used it a couple of times previously. My imagined story is that Aunt Mary loved to watch her nieces and nephews playing in the garden in the summertime.

On the flickr site this morning stripes seemed to be popular and since this one had not been used very much out it came again. It is an unusual one in that the stripes are printed on the bias i.e. I did not have to cut the fabric on the bias.

 The petunias seemed to be a good balance of colors to pose my block in for this week. Alas, no nearby playing children could be found.

The flowers and leaves in your photo make a very inviting scene with the beautiful block!
