So here is a new pattern and it's FREE.
|Kangaroo Jo and a Shoo Fly Fence|
Our town has a local museum which occupies one of the old bank buildings.
(Can you see the band hall to the right of the museum? That's where I am on Monday evenings, playing percussion in a brass band.)
The doors of the museum/bank are guarded by a pair of kangaroos.
I have been wanting to turn a kangaroo into a quilt block for a while. When I finished the final Chester Criswell quilt block I realised that now was my chance. I added a Shoo Fly border. If you have ever been to Australia you will know why I choose this traditional block; in the USA shoo fly is a lovely pie made with molasses and brown sugar, in Australia shoo fly is what we do all through the summer months.
The block is quick and quirky. To download a copy for yourself go to Two Bits Patches site by clicking
I hope you enjoy the block, and you know we love to see your photos.
