Mr. Chiu's quilt

Last year when some friends and I went on a cruise to Vanuatu, we, of course, found a drapery/quilt shop, and I of course bought quite a bit. This quilt is using some of that material and started out as a few blocks to show Sue and Di how to do the 10min. block by Suzanne O'Neill, but what to do with the few blocks that were made on the day? I still have a bit of handwork to do on the white squares, maybe some frangipanies in black thread, not sure yet. Now back to the green tuelle curtains for a party.

I just realised that I didn't include the designer in my last post! Will rectify it in the next one,, strange, I really thought I had done so!

Challenge Quilt

As my friend Marg of House of Margarita blog said, we have started another quilt challenge which is SUPPOSED to take some months, I say this because we started one earlier this year which I believe was SUPPOSED to take about 9 months, but someone got carried away and did it in a week or so!!!! That's the Amish one in one of my posts. Anyway, Marg and I, and Vicki from our forum (will post the full title later), and then some other friends from the forum all joined in on the action and are now sewing or planning their little hearts away!!!!!! I gave up trying to decide about colours (I do not have the tiniest little bit of artiste in my body!!!)and charged ahead with the first block.
