Nundle 2014

Last weekend I headed up to Nundle for my annual retreat weekend at the Cottage on the hill.

Early Saturday morning and the machines are all lined up the fabric is cut and we are ready to go.

I decided I would start to make my nieces wedding's quilt. The pattern I chose was the disappearing pinwheel block from the Missouri star quilt company this is the link if you want to see how the block / quilt is made

Lucky for me Kerry did all of my cutting, and there was a lot of cutting. It was so fun to play with all the possible blocks i could make, we all stood around the table looking at the different possibilities

Then later that night we played with the blocks to see the different options of  how the quilt possibly  could look. the choice was put to the future bride and she chose top right.

one of the things I love is when a room full of quilters play with blocks and layouts, we spent many hours, twisting and turning blocks to see the different effects. Luckily we had Miss Jules to twist and turn the blocks for us.

Not surprisingly for me, I did nt leave Nundle with a finished quilt. But that's okay I wanted to pin my blocks on the design wall and mull over their placement . . . .

i like to take my time deciding . . . .
some would say i procrastinate . . . . a bit

this is where i am up to to date. . . . . well. . . . .  actually i ve done a Little more i currently just need to pin the last row up, (it's 6 x6) then decide on the final position then it's sew, sew, sew. . . . .
