patchwork blocks from C & C

 I have today complete the blocks that Jennie Rayment has been doing on the create and craft show,   I think there are going to be 2 more at the beginning of february.  Like the ones for hands on tv I have used poly cotton for these as they are only a learning lesson. I have cheated on the rail fence and used the same one for both projects.

 

                                           rail fence, 2 log cabins and squares.


                       single Irish chain, Amish friendship star, dutchman`s puzzle and pieced star

 

                                  54/40 or flight, dresden plate and grandmothers fan

I have now a bit more confidence but still need practise both with the rotary cutter and matching points.  I have throughly enjoyed doing these though some took time to understand how to do, kept having to re read the instructions till they finally sunk into my brain!

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I like the block you have done. I love Jennie Rayment's workshops, I have done several as I live not too far from her.

You have done a great job with these blocks 54/40 is not an easy block to do.

You're so productive! You now have lots of block variations under your belt. Did you do the heart on the Grandmother's fan block by machine?

Gee Margaret you are going great guns with your squares. Good on you. I can see you having no trouble keeping warm under your lovely warm quilts when they are complete.

Margaret, these are gorgeous! You're tempting me to want to start quilting too! I especially love the Dresden plate, and you've chosen such pretty fabrics for them all. I think we share similar taste in fabrics!! Can't wait to see what lovely things you make from all these. Happy stitching!!

Your blocks are fantastic. I've always liked the Dresden Plate pattern especially. I would go crazy trying to match points. I think that is why I get along better with CQ ~ lol.
