Wonky House Swap + Block Lotto

For several months earlier this year I took part in a swap facilitated by Jane from  We swapped wonky houses, trees, stars and 4 patch blocks.  I finally put them together over the last couple of days.  Signature blocks were also included with the house blocks and I have included those on the front of the quilt under the respective house blocks.
I also won wonky star blocks from in July.  I am using some of these to border my quilt. I have attached  the first border to the left hand side of the quilt  The stars differ from the ones shown above - I will have to take more photos as I progress but for now it is time to get ready for work.  Cant wait to get back to this.


What a happy quilt, I love the variety of designs and the colors. Looking forward to seeing it all finished.

I see my block in there - how exciting. Wish I were as far along as you are in getting blocks pieced together. Great work!

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.

Light Up Your Landscape - Gloria Loughman Class

A couple of weeks ago I took part in my first ever quilt class.  It was run by Gloria Loughman
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am delighted with what I have produced.  I am not going to bind it but rather put facings on the back as Gloria taught us.  This was the first time I had used a walking foot.
There were 20 in the class and we all produced very different pieces.  I am noe keen to get her books and try some of her other methods of constructing quilts.
