Acorn Block

This the next 10" Yoko Saito block. It was nice to do a quick and more simple one after 
the more complex 20" block that I finished last week.

I do love this Asahi bias tape - it is so easy to use - already to go and with fusible on the 
back to hold it in place. It certainly beats making your own. I have used it for all the stems in these blocks - either in brown or two different greens.

Today we set up the Exhibition at the Craft and Sewing Show at ASB Showgrounds, 
Greenlane. We called it "Diversity" and it has work from some of our regular groups at 
the shop. So we have  'room' for Amish quilts, another for 1800s Reproduction quilts
and a third for Art Quilts. Then down the 'hallway' are the Amish quilts.

I hope a lot of you can get up to see it from Thursday through to Sunday 10.00am - 4.30pm each day. I  will take some photos and post them over the next few days.

Our stall is separate from the Exhibition and it will be featuring Modern Quilts, which is quite different for us. I will get some photos after we set that up tomorrow afternoon.


  1. What can I say, but, another gorgeous block. That bias tape sounds great, must check it out next time i, at the shop. Hope you have a successful weekend at the shop.

  2. next time i'm at the shop and. Hope you have a successful weekend at the show.!!!!! Don't think I will make it to the show, too much on this weekend.

  3. Lovely Robyn! Is that tape a tube or do the edges need to be finished? It looks like a time saver. Hope the show goes well for you.
