This is not a problem for what l will eventually do with mine. I am going to use my quilt as a background fabric and appliqué over top. I will post upon completing.
The idea is to sew all fabric together end to end then bring both ends together removing, 18 inches from one end. Then sewing down the long edge to the end. I found if you pressed the seams as you go it made the quilt a lot easier to handle. Repeat approx 5 times. Was very quick to do, so if you need a quilt in a hurry this could be the one for you. Very happy with the way it has turned out.

Had a wonderful time in Melbourne. My friend Debbie made me this bag for my B'Day, farewell gift. Thank you Deb for your kind and generous heart. Will treasure this bag. This is not the only bag Deb has made for me. Always so well made and very retro. This is my 150th Post doesn't the time fly when you share in blog land.

My good friend Jennifer picked me up from my Mothers home and took me via Gayle B's shops. We would frequent this shop often once upon a time. I was able to purchase items l have not been able to find here where l live. The apple core and Dresden template l have been searching the net for. Also l purchased 3 Bali Pops, one l will use to make the 1600 quilt, thanks Dianne.
We met up with the group for lunch at Rivers garden Centre in Yarrambat, than continued on to the retreat via Ballan Quilt store. Beautiful fabrics and tea house.
Also belonging to the Toowoomba Quilters l received tickets for their annual quilt show raffle. Both quilts are well worth purchasing a ticket or two. Which l will certainly be doing. The Toowoomba Quilt show is held at The Solo Centre, St Ursula's College, Rome street, Toowoomba. Saturday 17th September 2011, for the week of the garden carnival..
