Janet’s Truck Quilt

Quilt by Janet, from Pam Bono's quilt pattern

This is Janet’s version of the On the Road Again quilt pattern by Pam Bono Designs. Janet made it for her grandson; the wording on the trucks uses family names.

You can see three photos of Janet’s quilt on Pam Bono’s Facebook Gallery:

Meet Temperance the Tortoise

Today’s project was a tortoise pattern using the same basic template shape as the popular owl, plus a few extra body parts, of course.

Hearts for Valentine’s

Tomorrow’s meeting will feature an easy heart quilt block. Easy because it’s made from rectangles and squares. Instructions have been emailed.

Monday’s Meeting: Freezer Paper Scottie Dog

Hopefully the only freezing thing at today’s meeting will be the freezer paper! We’ll be doing freezer paper piecing, using a Scottie Dog block. (If you haven’t had the email with the template, you’ll also find it on Marion’s website here.)

Block of the Month: Cat

It was suggested we start doing a block of the month to (1) introduce beginners to new blocks and help build up quilting skills, and (2) make group quilts to sell for funds/raffle/donate. Donations of completed blocks appreciated.

We’ve all got our favourite blocks, so anyone who wants to suggest one to feature, please do.  (Ideally draw up an instructions sheet and templates too…!)

This one’s from Marion, so unsurprisingly it’s a cat.

Oops, this kitty seems to have lost a bit of his one ear in a fight...
