Hello and thank you for visiting. This is a community group for all Australian quilters to join or just follow. Membership is FREE and you are partnered each month and we make each other a 12 inch quilt block based on our preferences which we swap. (12.5 inches raw edge to raw edge) The emphasis of the group is on friendship and sharing. To find out more or register to join email me firstname.lastname@example.orgThis purpose of this blog is to chat and showcase blocks and quilts made by members, kind of like a show and tell . Yours in stitching, Sue

Busy weekend- My October swaps done.
I have been enjoying the Labour Day long weekend and have got lots of sewing and blogging done, and so it seems have other members from the emails I have been receiving.
I have managed to complete the blocks for my two partners this month, A 9 patch for Pat in Oregon USA in fall (autumn) colours and a wonky star in bright fun colours for Minette. I have to say I really enjoyed making the wonky star from the tutorial, very easy fun block to make. Members will be emailed the link as they are partnered with Minette, but email me if you want to make this block, I am happy to pass it on.
Minette's wonky star
As well as these two blocks I have managed to get my second eye spy jigsaw quilt well underway.
I am photographing the production of that in stages and will pop it on my own blog in a tutorial format
I have had a number of members wanting to know how to make this quilt. So stay tuned for that one. The Original pattern is from Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine Vol 17 #4. But I have modified this slightly to suit me,
