On Saturday Caloundra Arts group ( were I go to quilting) had their Autumn Spectacular. This was to show the public all the different groups that could be found at the centre as well as what they could do. It was great to see all the talented people and the wonderful display of their work.
Quilters had a table where some of the Lady's would demonstrate some different styles of work. I was asked to help and decided to show some needle work. Now I hate to say this but I started these blocks quite afew years ago ( try 4) It was a block of the month from Chandlers Cottage called " Oriental Baltimore" . Well I am pleased to say I have finished block number 4 so I have only 5 more block to complete ( lets hope it doesn't take me another 4 years).

This is the new block finished called Aster. I am happy with it and like the 3D bits in the flowers.
This is Cherry Blossom and would have to be my most favourite one.

This is called Maple I do love the colours and miss the maple tree in our old house.

This was the first one I made and it is called Japanese Iris although I added the extra Iris at the bottom as I thought it needed it and I didn't like the way the original block was finished there. I have started the next one so we will keep stitching away with every spare moment we get, so maybe soon I will have another one to show you. Have a great week and happy sewing.

  1. Your Oriental Baltimore blocks look great. I'm with you....... my favourite is the Cherry blossom one too. I hope we'll get to see the other five before too long.

  2. They are all lovely but I favor the cherry blossom one. You are very talented.
    Have a wonderful day.

  3. They are all very pretty, Bec! Don't wait four more years to finish! If you decide not to make the whole quilt, you could always finish quickly with a very exquisite table runner!

  4. It's going to look lovely when it's finished, hope we don't have to wait 4 years though!

  5. It's a shame to hide these beautiful blocks away. It would be lovely to see them all finished. Ann :-)
