While I was camping at Cotton Tree

(Sunshine Coast)

2 week-ends ago decided to visit the Patchwork Angel .

That's when I found this great pattern

(Blackbird Pie )

and its done in Drunkards Path Blocks

which was new to me also.....

I am game ...

I will give it a go

So back at the camp site............

as I had my cutting mat and cutter....

cut the whole top out when I arrived home ...I would set to sewing .........

This is my pile of blocks....

all pinned &ready to go

End of the day...

Quilt placed on the floor happy with the arrangement of colours
