Scrappy Blues and a New Zealand Flavour

For the last Saturday of Blues with
Rainbow Scrap Challenge I made a couple more H blocks using blue and
 a few scraps of New Zealand themed fabrics.
I also made one with a lovely Hoffman fabric which played a
part in the first quilt made for this grandson who will be having the H quilt.

These two blocks feature one of our native birds
the Pukeko see this post HERE for a photograph of this bird

this last one is the Hoffman feature fabric, I also have yardage with a black background

the Ruru (tiny owl) is on the left and the tui on the right.

Our colour for February is Pink so I need to get busy picking out pinks for my
Geese blocks.

I'll finish with another of my Hydrangeas from the garden

which are finding the weather a little too hot here at the moment.

Hope those of you catching all the snow are safe and well.

  1. You are such a trouble maker. You know I can't resist that pukeko fabric. Meanwhile, it will be wonderful to see all these H's come together.

  2. I love the flowy nature of the purple one and that fabric with the owl is wonderful - nicely done!

  3. Oh my look at that wonderful material. Gorgeous!!

  4. I love the unique fabrics you are using in the H blocks.

    Your flowers are beautiful. We are expecting our first really big snowstorm of the season tonight and tomorrow.

  5. Your fabrics are SO interesting . . . love how you are combining the in the H blocks!!

  6. Hydrangeas would freeze here today. Our high was minus five but a brisk wind made it feel even colder. How will you set the "H" blocks?

  7. Lovely blocks Maureen, I am eager to see the finished top!

  8. The block with the Ruru and Tui is my favourite.

  9. Love that Hoffman Kiwiana. I think it's the best Kiwiana of all time.

  10. Your "H" blocks are so lovely! We have 23" of snow piled up and now are expecting another 8" - 16" along with freezing rain and, why was it I wanted to live here??? hugs, Julierose

  11. Love those birds in your blocks! Now I've got to go back through your previous posts to see what else you've made!

  12. Wow! What beautiful fabrics! I can't wait to see your H blocks become a quilt. I wish I could say we were warm here in North Carolina, but I am lucky we don't have the snow those in the north east are dealing with. I don't like winter at all!

  13. Looking forward to seeing the pinks!

  14. I love the bird fabrics you are using. I'd never heard of the pukeko so it was fun to see the picture.
    I am jealous of your hydrangea. It is snowing AGAIN here in NY and we are expecting another storm later in the week. My poor hydrangeas are buried under a mountain of white.

  15. Such fun designs with your wonderful fabrics! Loved seeing all the birds and learning their names :)
