Show and Tell

Our local group of Stitch and Chatters run a block swap each year, which involves about 20-something swappers, who swap blocks each month - you know the drill.....

Anyway, last weekend we had a lunch so that we could get as many finished quilts together in the same room (and also give us a deadline for getting the blocks put together, so they don't forever live in a box....Julie.....).

I showed a picture of mine a couple of weeks ago, which went to a friend who needs it.

Anyway, all these quilts are made from the same block and don't they look great!!

So much time was put into making something different and there is not one that is the same. This one actually has specialty sewing machine stitches in the cream. Can't see it very well, but it was a practice piece for learning a new machine. What a great idea.

This one has a border made from the left over half square triangles chopped off from the ends of individual pieces.

This one has a very gentle progression of colour and tone.

This one was finished the morning of the lunch...I think it is going to have borders but we need to work our what is going to work for this particular designs.

Ann's are usually off centre - she works very hard to produce a finished product which none of the rest of us would have thought of . I think she needs to make more blocks to make it bigger because she has nothing to do with her time.. Ha!

I have been hard at work, in between being ill with the dreaded lurgy, but seem to have no pictures to show, mostly because I either don't have permission to show or they are going into magazines and I can't show them prior to publication.
