Australasian Quilt Bee

I don't think I've posted about this before but I joined a Quilting Bee back in March this year. I have a habit of over-comitting myself and this Bee is no exception! I'm 2 months behind (and will be three months behind once the October parcel arrives).
I still consider myself a beginner quilter and prior to joining this group I had never pieced a block that had anything other than right-angles in it. But I have enjoyed being pushed to make blocks with triangles, some quilt-as-you-go and even some freestyle block making is on the cards!
Squares within squares for Jo (March 2010).
Small scrappy squares for Viv (April 2010).
Quilt as you go, Munki Munki centres for Kellie (May 2010).
Boxy Stars for Monika (June 2010).Wonky Stars for Nova (July 2010).
My challenge for the next couple of nights is to finished a Flower Fairy embellished block (for September) and to design and make my own "house" block (very, very belatedly for August)!
I also need to learn how to take better photos of my blocks!

Wow! Impressive. I want to learn how to quilt but have no idea where to start. Did you do a course, Ange or teach yourself? J x

Ange! I'm impressed. Maybe you could finish the quilt I started for Ina like, 2 years ago.
