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.
