I showed my little purple challenge quilt here last week.

At our monthly meeting of Gatton Quilters, some other members also brought along their quilts. There were some great ideas and inspired thinking to create a quilt using only the one colour.
Jan M has been using this challenge to try out some pieced mini quilt blocks. This is her purple block, in which I think she has used the varying fabrics to great effect:

Aren’t they all beautiful in their purple lusciousness!!

We also had Jan K showing us how to use various products like lutrador, heat distressable tissue, angelina fibres and a heat gun to make some beads:

And another thing- voting has started over on the Bloggers Quilt festival. I mentioned last week about entering two quilts into it. The Lollipop Trees quilt is in the Applique section- you can click on here to vote. Once you decide on the quilt you like, click on the little heart in the corner to vote. Easy!
