Kaleidoscope No. 8

Here is the last of the works begun at our workshop. I am pleased to say that they have all come a long way since that day and as the deadline for the exhibition draws near, hopefully everyone is nearing completion.

This very colourful jungle print produced some very bright hexagons.

Because of the variety of colours, I have divided the hexagons into three separate wall hangings. Stay tuned for the end results.

Kaleidoscope No. 7

How about turning these Asian dragons into
swirling pools of gold. A two colour combo can be
just as dramatic.

Ladies showed their progress at our last patchwork day. Our deadline has stopped creeping closer and is now at a run as our exhibition date draws near.

Kaleidoscope No. 6

How about those Pirates of the Caribbean? If you
like to spend time on the open see then these
nifty naughtical hexagons will be just perfect for you.
Just need to complete two more cubes.

Long Service Leave Quilts

Here is the latest update on my quilts I started while on Long Service Leave at the end of 2006.
Numbers 2 and 3 are finally complete.
This one used 5" floral squares from a fabric club and was constructed using the "Shabby" style. My niece received it for her second birthday.

In this one I used the remaining 5" squares from a fabric club. I cut two squares in half and joined each opposite, then cut in half again and rejoined to get 4 patch squares. Matching colours I came up with the twelve blocks separated by a 1 inch sashing but I wasn't happy with it. Have you ever placed out your quilt blocks, stood back and thought "Oh, how on earth can I fix it?" So I bundled them up, took them into our next Patchwork get-together and said "Help!" There's always someone who can come up with the perfect solution. Kerry suggested the narrow cream sashings within each block and I think its turned out very well.

Number 4 is sandwiched and awaiting quilting, in among my other partly completed projects.

Kaleidoscope No. 4

These lovely hexagons above were created from the
oriental fabric below. This arrangement has since been
re-designed and all will be revealed at our exhibition
to be held in September/October.

All the ladies are progressing along with their kaleidoscope quilts.
