My partner is Lyn from Queensland and her request was for any block in black, white and red. This is her block - in the mail tomorrow.

I hope she is happy with what I have made.

Seaside Disappearing 9-Patch

One of my daughters and her family live in a seaside town. My S-I-L loves fishing (as recreation and a source of fresh food), so that was inspiration for a quilt I am making for his birthday early next year.

Only three more blocks and it can be put together. The centre square is always the sarong fabric, surrounded by others representing sand, water, waves, sky, seaweed, rockpools, sea creatures etc.
A picture of the final project soon.

Swap Block Australia

My partner for November was Mary Chow in Canada. Mary asked for any block in teal and neutrals. I made this Mosaic Tile block -

and Mary made this Square in a Square block for me. It arrived in today's mail. I love the colours and patterns - thank you Mary.

Today was Tai Chi morning with U3A. Our class was videoed and will be available soon on DVD. The energy of the group was amazing and our routine the best it has been (for me anyway).
