The night-time temperature barely dips below the high 20's, so no-one is getting ANY sleep!
Despite my best intentions, it's been so difficult to just sit down and sew. However, I had a few "Bee Bold, Bee Brave, Bee Helpful" bee blocks to finish (courtesy of the Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild), so here they are:
Catherine's Garden Fence - quite striking, easy to do, and no matching of seams or points! Hyacinth Quilt Designs http://hyacinthquiltdesigns.blogspot.com.au/2011/01/garden-fence.html
MJ's Raw Edge Circles - based on this tutorial : http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2009/12/ra ... orial.html
Bronwyn's "+'s & x's": inspired by http://www.modabakeshop.com/2012/11/nou ... quilt.html
Caroline's Wonky House - Wonky Town - She asked us to "create" our own designs.... this took me Ages!
Sally's Chevron Squares from Fresh Lemons Modern Quilts Kaleidoscopic Kites (http://www.freshlemonsquilts.com/?p=1016) (The colour photo was a nice touch Sal, and helped).
Lorraine's block - actually, this is my favourite - and the quilt it makes is gorgeous! (Kitchen Windows, by Elizabeth Hartman) Here is a link to Sew Shells Blog showing all the blocks sewn together - I love the way the grey borders make terrific off-set sashing, when alternate blocks are turned 90 degrees.
Well, even apart from the hot, humid, uncomfortable weather, it's been challenging to work with unfamiliar patterns and colour-schemes, and of course using other people's fabrics means taking much more much time and care. However, I think it was worth it... I did an "okay" job, and definitely extended my piecing skills. Thanks, MMQG ladies!
