Hello and thank you for visiting. This is a community group for all Australian quilters to join or just follow.

(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 on quiltingblocks@hotmail.com This 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

January Blocks

Petah and I swapped blocks this month....

Petah asked for a Log Cabin... one side in neutrals and the other in brights

a challenge for me as I don't work with a lot of brights.....


I asked for a Churn Dash in muted civil war type colours....

a challenge for Petah as she doesn't work in a lot of muted!



I thought it was funny we both had blocks to make with fabrics out of our usual colour zones....

but that's what the block swap is great for... expanding our horizons?

I've decided to do more in brights now... thanks Petah....

Righto, Gotto Go... horizons to expand....

I agree Fiona, that is one of the things I love about the group, getting to use patterns and colours that you would normally not try.
