Hello Dear Reader,
I have had the best day ever! In one day, four ladies cut fabric, made a quilt, basted it, quilted it and edged it! We stopped for tea, coffee and home made Bakewell tart mid morning and then the sewing continued.
By tea time, the quilt was completely complete. We were tired but it shows what can be done in a day if you work together! The darkest blue stripes are from the donated fabric bundle from America. The yellow was part of my recent jumble sale haul, the paler blues were donated shirts from a colleague, the backing came from another colleague.
It was lovely to show people how easy it is to make a quilt very cheaply. We even used off cuts of Hobbs batting that I had from previous
It was great fun and should anyone else want to come along and quilt - I'll put aside another quilting day at the top of my blog. We're all going to meet again to crochet and for me to learn how to crochet.
Enjoy the handiwork of an incredibly trio of ladies, one who was a proficient crafter who has quilted many times before, one a sewer but who had never quilted before and one who had never used a sewing machine before. Kim's name was pulled out of the hat (an actual hat!) and we really appreciated her speed sewing at the end to help us edge the quilt before night fall!
Well done ladies..............you were amazing and I had the best of times xxxxxxxxxxxxx
