Anthea's Charity Block 2014

I didn't have any cute creatures in my stash, so I spent quite some time trawling through the kids section of my local fabric shop. And then some trying to pick a contrast for the centre frame.  I kept coming back to that marvellous Kaffe Fassett purple - it's so full-on isn't it? I knew I had the wobbly stripe at home and so in the end I've made something quite bold that I hope doesn't detract from the cute octopus.
Thanks ever so Katy for coordinating this year's charity quilt.

  1. Andrea, I love the bold contrast and the cute octopus. The final quilt will be great. I must get round to my charity block soon. Thank you for my block, the colours and tones are perfect. It arrived a couple of days ago, and I love the Margaret Preston postcard. I saw an exhibition of her work at the Art Gallery of New South Wales when we lived in Sydney and I just love her work. The way she captured the subtle blue/green shades of the Aussie foliage is lovely and her bold style is beautiful. How nice to have an extra surprise in the envelope with the block.

  2. The octopus is so cute, great choice!
