Patchwork Chevron

Hi All,

Sorry I am so late with my blocks but at least they are in the mail for August even if you have not received them.
I have chosen to make a patchwork chevron quilt from a pattern by Jeni at In Colour Order that I came across at Moda bakeshop.

It is an easy block to put together but I love the end results so far from the blocks I have put together-in fact I just wanted to keep going.
I have sent out a 14inch square of grey dotted fabric and 4, 5inch squares. I am asking you to add 5 more squares and sew them into a nine patch. The squares can be any colour, plain or patterned and do not have to match the fabrics I have sent - I do love brights however..
So you have a nine patch block, and a grey square.

Draw a diagonal line across the grey square.
Place it right sides together on top of the nine patch and sew a seam a quarter of an inch on either side of the line.

Then cut on the line to yield effectively 2 half square triangles.

This is what a few blocks look like put together

Hope that makes sense.
Excuse the photos-cropping, editing and blogger were not playing together today.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Also my new address is
11A Owens Road
Auckland 2123
New Zealand.

Elisa's block

Well I've finally made Elisa's block. It seems so long ago since she asked us to make this block and of course I was away tripping around the US. Now ir's done and will be posted back to Louisiana tomorrow. Hope it gets there quickly.

I had fun doing it.........hugs Sue

Hi All,

Has anyone received the July blocks as yet? Maybe mine are travelling the world first.

I am down for the August Block (so I thought) but am a bit behind sorry.
I have just moved house-from one end of New Zealand to the other and am still unpacking boxes, so no sewing has been done for weeks.

My new address is-
11A Owens Road
Auckland 2123.
New Zealand

Mail is being redirected from my old address so nothing should go missing.

(enjoying sunny winter days)
