Thank you all for your comments. Gudrun it wasn't a Bernina Club ( but I know what they are ), It was my local Patchwork and Quilting Group in Tauranga that has about 110 lady members. Tauranga is the small city quite close to where I live and only about 13 kilometers away. Julieq I agree Jelly Rolls would be very suitable for this quilt.The first photo here shows how secondary patterns emerge when the blocks are laid together. Here only the block at the top left is completely sewn; the others are laid out so I can see how they look and move them around till I like them.( still in 4 smaller sections) There are 6 blocks here. ( each 15inches square ) I have more made but just laid out that many.
The second photo shows how a quarter of one block is constructed.This is the second time a diagonal cut is made.The 2 parts shown are a diagonal half of 2 different blocks. By swapping the part blocks around the colours and fabrics are mixed.
The 3rd photo is to show that Inky is quite recovered thank you friends. He is sitting up on our garden table referred to by us as the Trojan Horse as it has 4 wooden wheels and can by moved around the garden. He likes to sit and supervise if I am hanging washing on the line or gardening.
The Luculia tree smells wonderful at the moment and this morning had bumble bees, bees and butterflies all in its midst. ( couldn't get them to all pose together though ).Finally the last photo shows 2 fat native pigeons - Kereru observing me from the top of the Copper beech tree.
