October Patchwork

Liz from New Zealand visited us this time for our quilting day bringing with her her first two ATCs. I exchanged one of mine for the second one here. It is really beautiful.

Karen worked really hard on Helen's blue flowers quilt that has been so long in the making. I have included a photo below of the nearly finished borders hanging over the banisters.

Jenny, Linda, Robyn and I worked on other projects. Mine was quilting the "A Peek of Pink" quilt made with the fabric we were given for entering our Wilma's Chocolate Roses quilt in the Sydney exhibition.

Liz put together the Bright Flowers blocks with a lot of discussion from all. It is just amazing what you can do with insufficient completed blocks. It will end up a single bed topper, possibly going to the Aussie Heros quilts.

 After everyone had left for the evening Liz and I decided to put together the blocks from Elaine's Japanese Quilt. We are quite pleased with our work. It was extreme maths to make it fit. Only the borders to go (as shown) until the top is complete.

Geoff, Jen and Ponyo came to supervise and chat for a while.
