Four Modern Blocks - Final Part

Message from Chris Smith - this is the final technique for this modern quilt, I hope you have enjoyed it.  Even if you don't go on to make a quilt, the four techniques may come in handy for you in the future!

Four Modern Blocks 

Message from Chris Smith - I am going to start this week showing you the four blocks that make up this modern quilt.  It is a project designed by Helen Howes in 2017 for The Quilter Magazine but once you have mastered the four blocks, they can be made to different sizes and put together in your own design, so no two quilts would ever be the same!

First of all, here is a picture of my completed quilt illustrating the 4 blocks.  The first one we are going to do is the "Tiger Block" and requirements and instructions will be coming soon.


Our 2020 Charity Quilt was launched early in 2019 when members were asked to make up one (or two!) blocks from fabric that was in the late Margaret Smith's stash to create a quilt together to be raffled under licence at our Exhibition planned for September 2020.

The quilt is a Lynne Edwards design made of 2 different blocks.  All blocks have now been returned and Dolores has inserted the triangles around each side block and has sewn the rows together.  It looks spectacular as you can see below..... 

These are the 2 blocks we have all contributed to making.

This is the charity quilt we are making - it is from a book by Lynne Edwards


Dolores has been very busy with our charity quilt and has now added a lovely border and binding which really complements the whole thing.

Following a visit to Quilters Corner in Evesham, Charlie (the proprietor) has done the quilting on her long arm quilting machine free of charge as the proceeds are going to our chosen charity, Campden Home Nursing.  Dolores and Charlie have chosen an open flower/leaf design in a neutral thread.

This is excellent news for our project and we are delighted by Charlie's generosity - it will result in much more support for the charity.  Thank you to Quilters Corner!
