Birthday blocks

Today was Sweet Pea day and it was lovely to share with our group of ladies once again.

We never know what might turn up by way of show and tell.  Today there was an unexpected emphasis on birthday blocks.

At a previous Sweet Pea meeting Linda shared the requirements for making her birthday blocks.

This is a selection that she has already made up and today the others returned theirs to be added to this group.  This is going to be quite a spectacular quilt when completed.

Andreena brought along her birthday blocks completed.  She put them together, bordered them and machine quilted and bound them.

The quilt is going to be used to go with their lounge room suite.

Andreena did an excellent job of machine quilting and it will make a lovely addition to her home.

Debbie has pieced her birthday blocks together and added a pink border.  There is still a lime green border to go before it is ready for machine quilting.

Very bright and cheery the piecing has a stain glass look about it when held up to the light.

Debbie loves lime green and this quilt highlights her love for this colour as well as other brights.

We look forward to seeing this quilt again once quilted.

All in all another enjoyable and refreshing group visit - thank you Sweet Peas.
