The photo shows 4 completed blocks . There is supposed to be sashing between each block - my job is to make 130 sashing blocks and then join all blocks together.
I think it will turn out really well.
The pattern is called 'SCRAP BASKET ROSE' and was featured in volume 15 no.9 of APQ - http://www.apqmagazine.com.au
Well I must go and do a few more sashing blocks - I've only done 5 so far and I should be writing reports!
Take care until next time.

The blocks on the left are for the 10 year old grand daughter of my friend Lorraine who is in the patchwork group to which I belong.
Our patchwork group 'The Material Girls' meets once a month for lunch and a chat, but we don't sew.
Each month one of us hands out a project for the others to do and we return the next month with the finished work.
You might want blocks done for a quilt or some smaller items. Last year they made me wall hangings and cushion covers for my family room. This year they are making blocks for a quilt for my bed.
We also make quilts for charities to raffle. We like to get together at someone's home to do this.
PS Potch is settling in really well, as though she has always lived here. I'd better go and write my reports now as it is the busy time of the year for school teachers in Australia.

Before I show you the birthday quilt, i though I'd include my second attempt at pleated log cabin.
This time I made another cushion cover using one large block. It measures about 40cm square. This one is for me and I have one more to make which will be a xmas pressie for one of the girls I work with.
