Another block for my "Family Values/Tender Moments Quilt

I hope Rose the designer of "Threadbare Creations" approves of what I have done with two of her patterns "Family Values & Tender Moments" I need to make what was the Family Values quilt quite a lot bigger king size en fact so am using the Tender Moments blocks to achieve this, I like my quilts big so that they hang over the sides almost to the floor, Family Values sits really well on top of a queen sized bed so the rest I am doing are really for the overhang so I'll put them on the quilt on their sides so it looks right and you can see the pics and words.

Looks like I spoke too soon

Looks like I spoke too soon when I told Laurie my cyclamen were doing really well after being in flower for around six months the last one is looking a bit sick today it's gone all droopy so I hope this is not the beginning of the end for it.

Tender Moments" Well Not Quite"

As most of you know I'm doing Family Values by Threadbare Creations I just love Roses patterns well I finished Family values however in the mean time we bought the new Number control bed so now I need kingsize quilt so after lots of thinking about how I could add borders ect to make it bigger I came up with the idea of doing more blocks but then it was what kind of blocks from where?? I ended up putting it aside and was going to start a lovely stitchery I received from Christine which I have been itching to start then what do I see in with my patterns " Tender Moments" by Threadbare Creations so I got to thinking I wonder if I can put the two together so with a few changes (hope thats OK Rose) this is what I came up with. I had to change the border and the colour, what do you girls think will it work???

Can Anybody Help ??

Hi Girls, I'm trying to do a quilt from an old copy of "Pathway to Paradise "by Jacky Hens, my problem is that I don't have the instruction page, I made the blocks before I noticed it was missing, I also don't have a colour copy of the finished quilt to copy from, it was published in Australian Country Craft a few years ago.
Any help would be great.
