Final Tinners Tuesday

Last January a group of twelve friends decided to each make one block for each member of the group, based on the fabric provided in the "tin" and theme suggested by the owner.

Eleven rotations have occurred and today, the "tins" were returned to their owners.

I had gotten a bit behind, so over the last few weeks I completed 3 blocks.

Garden Path, in Australian fabrics, for a "Down Under" theme.

A basket of posies, for the theme "Baskets". It is hand applique, something I seldom do.

A block with kittens, from a "tin" full of cat fabric. I have no idea if this block has a name, or if I made it up.

Now, for the big reveal of my blocks. My theme was "50 shades of Grey and Purple"

Aren't they all lovely? Now I will have to sew them together. The tops are to be finished by Easter. I think that is Easter 2014, although some of us were thinking 2015!


  1. Lovely blocks. I too have a Garden Path on the go but it's a whole quilt. I do like the gray and purple.

  2. Your chosen colour is so lovely, and your blocks super, both given and received. this is a great idea .Cheers from Jean

  3. Love that they've given you blocks in such lovely colours, for you to make a whole quilt. What a great idea, to work on your own quilt.

  4. I think all the participants and going to have a fun challenge ahead of them putting their tops together.
