Geranium Delight 3 & 4 + Mum

Firstly I have a couple of blocks to share with you today. These are both English paper pieced blocks for my Geranium Delight project. I'm continuing to use 1930's style prints from my stash and have found that an F8 is a great size to make 6 of these large jewels (or hexagons) with a little bit left over for my scrap tub (you know me and scraps). 

The outer ring is made up of 12 x 1.5" jewels and I use a FQ size piece. It's lucky that I had prints in both F8 and FQ sizes in my stash.

As I'm sewing these, I'm wondering what colour backgrounds these will be appliqued to. A single background or a variety of backgrounds? At this stage, I'm tending towards a light pink or light blue or possibly even a light lilac. Or maybe all three? 

I'm very undecided, but would like to start the applique process soon so that I can remove the outer border of papers and put them to use in more blocks.

This weekend has been very difficult for my family and I as my dear mum passed away. She fought her cancer with all that she had. Mum was a beautiful person and we spoke every single day. She was my greatest supporter and my rock. We could speak about anything and everything. 

We had a bond where I'd think of her and next thing, my phone would ring and she'd be there to say hello. At other times I'd call or text her and she'd say, "I was just thinking about you".

Mum loved a funny selfie with a crazy filter. My phone is full of our shared selfies. I'm going to miss her more than I can even comprehend at this stage.
