from the weekend. I should have said that the photos in my previous post were of Chris Serong's award winning quilt and not mine. Here are the 4 blocks I managed to finish and I have another 9 large blocks to finish and 11 more small star blocks. Gee that won't take long will it?
I'm also working on my hand sewing of hexagons. Like many of you I also participated in exchanging 2 1/2" squares with quilters from around the world. Postage cost quite a bit and I haven't done anything with the squares. Some weren't a precisely cut size so I decided to sort them into similar tones and shades of colours and make elongated hexagons with white on cream hexagons between the blocks. I'm happy with the way it's looking now and I'm enjoying the handwork as I find it very relaxing.
I've also been piecing a Challenge quilt for my Online SCQ Retreat in Bathurst on the second weekend of May. I won't show that one until after the retreat but it's coming together OK and the challenge is to use "used flannel shirts".
I'm posting the photos of the 4 finished quilts on my other blog at http://ozcomfortquilts.blogspot.com
Now I'm off to practise with my new sewing machine before my free motion quilting class with Deborah Louie next week at the Australasian Quilters Convention.
I'm going to make more sunflower blocks while I practise with the new machine so I can complete two tasks at the same time.
More later, Jan Mac
