Patternreview Quilt Blocks

I finally got around to making a quilt block for the PR Friendship Quilt. Thank goodness Deepika extended the deadline to the 19th. I'll pop it in the post tomorrow morning but I've no idea how long it will take to wing halfway across the world. It never seems to take too long coming this way.


(As an aside: I am so impressed with Sewingpatterns.com - I ordered on Saturday Jan 3rd NZ time, which was Jan 2nd US time, and received them the following Saturday! Wow! Needless to say I'll be using this service again as the local Spotlight never seems to receive new stock. Not the staff's fault.)



I used Kiwiana fabrics (except for the multicoloured border). The boots in the top block are decorated gumboots which just appealed to me. I'm not even going to bother counting this little bit off stash, lol.
As I suspected, I found this small dabble into the quilting world quite addictive. I'm doing my best to ignore it though - the last thing I need is another stash to house!

There's that gumboot reference again! What a hoot :) . Your quilt blocks are so colorful and will make a welcome addition for the quilt. I really should have done one but so much to do, so little time.

LOVE the boots!!! SO cute. I can't wait to see this whole quilt pieced together. I didn't participate last time (didn't even realize it was going on.) This time all my favorite bloggers and PR'rs are participating it seems! I really want the finished quilt, LOL!

Too funny! I think I've dabbled in every craft there is except stained glass.

The quilt blocks look great, btw.

Quilting can become quite addicting if you let it. I love the slightly Kiwi ethnic theme to your blocks and the colors are wonderful.
