Refugee Quilt - Sunday morning

This is the 9 fabric version of this pattern. Cut your fabric into 4 inch strips (there will be 4 strips of each colour) , arrange in a pleasing sequence, and sew together. Press. Then sew together to form a tube.
Cut each tube into 10 x 4 inch tubes. Unpick somewhere (I started with the red square, as I wanted these around the centre), lay out your strip, then proceed to unpick 7 more, moving where you unpick along one colour each time. Sew all these together, then make a mirror image set for the other side.
Here the left hand side is all sewn, including the extra strip that forms the centre. The right hand side is still unsewn.

Wow - lots of great blogs lately with interesting comments and much great colour. Nice to see on a truly wintery day.
