Just a couple of photos to share today….

The first is from Sandra in Canada.  It’s her version of our 2008 Mystery Quilt…..


Then there’s Viv’s lovely brown and blue Lone Star from one of our classes….

First sewing for 2011

We had no internet or phones this morning…something to do with the floods here in Brisbane I suspect……thankfully we still had power, so it was sewing time…….I made some 3D bow tie blocks from a pattern that I found on

If you cut all your squares at 3.5” instead of 2” it yields a block that will finish at 6”……I made 4 blocks and joined them so the 12” block will fit in with the others in my sampler quilt……


The photo doesn’t show it very well, but the middle bit of each tie is kind of puffy and sits up nicely…..

Also made two sample blocks for the Dollar Block program that kicks off next week......just give a call if you'd like to be a "Dollar Blocker"......$12 for the whole block pattern each month and come December, you'll have made 12 blocks for that really special someone's Christmas gift quilt!
