FUN WITH TESSA

On the PP Forum, Tessa put up a suggestion we all make a quilt together. She was embarking on the Underground Railway Quilt and asked if anyone wished to join her along her journey. Well at the time I didn't fancy it at all and was busy anyway so opted not to join in. Things change, you get caught up with stuff you are doing, well I did and on a second look at the blocks they were making, I quite fancied joining in at this late stage. I asked Tessa if I could and she said 'come on in'. So this is what I have been doing the past few days, catching up with everyone else on the block making. How it works is Tessa is using the actual Book of the Quilt, then posting the name of the block she has made, we have to search on the Internet for a pattern of that name, make it and voila we have a 'kind of' UGRQ. I found most of the blocks in my disc of Block Base, so printed them out and got stuck in, here are the ones I have done so far.

First a picture of the fabrics I have chosen to use for this quilt, all from my stash...
 this one shows the background fabric I shall use...

Great looking blocks! Hope your carpenter's wheel goes well - I found that one the most difficult. Ros x
