Super 7s OP 25, 26 from Virtual Quilter

Not sure about the colours in the first design, but love the design itself. Perhaps it is the applique which makes it a winner for me.

Love the centre block in this one … it works much better on point than it does in a straight setting.

South Aussie to Tassie 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

I started naming a series of blocks as Border Crossings … and South Australia has is linked to every mainland state, so rather than leave Tasmania out of the mix I thought that I could allow a sea crossing as a border … though it is not an obvious choice as Victoria is directly across Bass Straight, and the route from South Australia has to reach Bass Straight via the Southern Ocean.

I think the first design today is my favourite, but don’t quote me on that as I sometimes/often change my mind!

South Aussie to Tassie Sampler, 1, 2, 3 from Virtual Quilter

This is an appropriate time to introduce this project file … the only state borders open to South Aussie at the moment is Tassie.

This is from a series of pieced 7P blocks which started as fairly simple crosses, then I modified each cross to get a series of blocks which work well together. In this case the modifications are still happening.

The first design I am sharing came after several false starts because I didn’t have any modifications, and I love it.

Like most projects I start this one is getting interesting.

Love the third one too!

7 Patch Puzzles 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting grid.

Nothing like getting myself into a tangle … but I love the results in the second design, even if the first design was a bit dull by my standards.
