Turquoise, Purple and Cream....

This is the fabulous colour combination for the current  "Block of the Quarter"

Directions to make the traditional, scrap delight, 8 inch block "Louisiana" can be found in the August edition of The Template (page 41)
The block is composed of rectangles and the Flying Geese patchwork unit, needing turquoise and purple prints, and a cream solid. 
Many blocks will make an extremely striking quilt top!

As always "winner takes all" when they are part of the draw at the Burwood meeting of The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc.
Block pieces can be easily rotary-cut and need to measure 8 1/2 inches (unfinished)
Please send in a block or two to be in the draw.

Self named blocks need to reach the Guild Office by Tuesday 9 October for the AGM the following weekend.
At the Guild's August meeting, Wailyn Mar, Template Editor, very deservedly "won" all of the red, black and white "Spool" blocks ... enough for quite a large quilt top. 

There is time still to raid the stash and whip up a Louisiana block this weekend!
