Polaroid 9 Patch
What a lovely quilt to finish up the month of May. It is my only finish this month but it was an important one.
The 9 Patch blocks were sewn by 14 ladies from the Quilt Club Australia Bee. Twelve were from my Bee #1 and two were from ladies in another QCA Bee. You can find my tutorial for the block here.
This quilt will be packaged up and sent off to a family who lost their house (and very nearly their own lives) in the Tasmanian Bushfires in January this year.
That brilliant orange Polaroid camera block was made by Kristy of Quiet Play who created the fab paper pieced pattern for it. You can find that Camera pattern in her Craftsy shop along with the patterns for the random polaroid blocks on the back.
Kristy has already sent 4 quilts to the Bushfire affected family and I will send this one, along with my first ever quilt.
I had just enough time this afternoon to catch the last of the sun to photograph the quilt. And so did the chooks.
