Perfect Find

A wonderful set of blocks found their way to me

just the thing for an Aussie Hero's quilt.

being an aviation themed fabric I used a variation of the Twister block  page 59 of  Victoria's book
15 Minutes of Play

alternate layout
still thinking I have a destination for this quilt and need to add something Australian in theme.

I started this because the blocks arrived but now they will be a quilt that will do what all quilts do GIVE COMFORT.

and moving along

a pile of someone elese's scraps to sort included

4 ready made spiderweb blocks  I cornered them with a a pale print that reads as white

because 3 of the blocks were blue and only one pink square I used them as light and dark blocks.
turning them on point helps.  blogger gave me black setting squares but I'm going for something less dramatic.

Happy Weekend   Terry
