Well it was my youngest sisters 50th birthday earlier this month and thanks to the suggestion made by my oldest sister, I knew what to get her as a gift, I should say make her and that was a quilt. I am always collecting fabric from my travels to op shops, thrift stores, car boot sales, garage sales etc. so what better way to use some of it. The quilt is made from a discontinued sample book of curtain material. Each piece of material gave me 4 pieces of the same pattern and colour. The patterns were repeated on different coloured material. The border is a recent purchase which is also remnant of curtain material.
As I usually do, I get so caught up in the "task", this time making the quilt, I forget to take photos. I forgot to take any of the sample book before I took it apart, I forgot to take photos of the finished quilt...... I know, how do you forget to take photos of the finished item!!!!!! At least I got one of Jackie opening the parcel, so you can at least get an idea of what it looked like finished. I'm going to have to take to trip to her place (3+ hours away) and take a photo or two. A good excuse, as if I need one to visit. Road Trip.
