Lisa attends the Friday evening sessions from 7-9pm (scheduled on alternate Fridays). She has been making these blocks following a pattern, but then decided to enlarge the quilt. This totally changed the layout of the quilt - here are her blocks in their decided layout.
Lisa will start joining these very soon.

This is the new pattern "Hot Pad Shuffle". You could use them as oven mitts or for protecting your benches from hot crockery.... but for me...I want to use the designs on an apron pocket...
Here is what I want to put across the bottom and/or top. The Gingham Girls again, or Santa in his sleigh - as shown in the Christmas Buckets pattern.
And we have the Gingham Girls - "Things I Like" patterns for Block of the Month (pattern only) OR you can buy just one pattern because you like it... OR you can buy the whole set of patterns at a special discount price.
These are some of my favourite images in the quilt.

Bronwyn made her compendium to fit her A2 sized cutting mat, and she covered her ironing surface with this smashing purple and gold fabric.
Marion loves the William Morris prints.

Jean used variegated thread to stipple and quilt "Crown" designs into the border. This is a stunning quilt Jean. We are so lucky to have you in Gisborne.

This is one "first quilt" that will never cause embarrassment (unlike my first one *cringe*).
Well done Marg.
