Fairholme Quilters' show and tell

Georgie's gorgeous blue and white fabrics have been settling in to her stash since our first visit to Boolooroo, some years ago. The blocks are made by the 'quilt as you go' method. note the placement of the darkest value fabrics in the block borders - they really help the eye to move around the quilt.

Jill followed Elizabeth Hartman's directions (substituting 3" finished squares for a larger quilt) for laying out simple nine-patch blocks in a lattice, with counterpanes of Kona 'Coal' (Robert Kaufman), for this community quilt. 

'Quilt-as-you-go' also turned these four patch circles ...

 ... into scrappy hour glasses on one side ...

... and scrappy circles on the reverse, under Lyn's magic wand.

Thanks to Sue Crowe for the images.
