A friend of mine (who shall remain nameless but she knows who she is!) has managed to get me to help some of the ladies in our Cottage groups to make a Sampler Quilt.  I am not a teacher but have come up with a plan for 12 x 12" blocks and these are the first three.  Simple 9-patch, simple 4-patch (Rail Fence) & what I am calling a complex 9-patch (a block called True Blue) - the others will have a choice of about 8 different blocks all based on a 9 patch.  Of course, I started without any colour/theme in mind, so it will be interesting to see how this quilt turns out.  Keep tuned.

Another block completed on my Aussie Antique quilt.             This is No: 8 - nearly halfway there - more circles. This quilt is also developing as I go.  There will be 10 with a floral-type background and 10 with a narrow striped background (didn't have enough of the floral for all 20 blocks)- again, don't know how this will be put together - I'll find out when all 20 blocks are complete. Each block will have some embroidery to complete it.


  1. Is it me, is it me?
    ...and oh my quilting goddess for the next one!!!!

  2. Who ever said - you're a Dag - SuZanne - glad you liked the applique.
