I have also participated in a group project with friends, to warm one of our friends.
It was a secret quilt with a very short time limit and a lot of work, but it was also very rewarding and very emotional for everyone involved.
We ended up with a big quilt.
I will not show you the whole quilt, for a lot of reasons – maybe sometimes in the future…
1700 inches of fabric is quite a pile.
You might remember I have made one of these string quilts before, and with 2 special birthdays coming up, it was time to finish the blue quilt for J, 1 year old, and big sister L, 4 years old.
The consept is originally made for 2 jelly rolls, but I have been cutting from my fabric collection for both quilts, and I have been having a ball!
Cat approved :-)
Winter is definitively here, with sleth and snow and rain.
Miss Cat does not enjoy the great outdoors as much as before, and she is sleeping a lot indoors.
Lately she has enjoyed sleeping behind (and around) my computer, sometimes with her paws on the keyboard. You can see her paws are ready for the cold weather, with a lot of fur between her toes, for insulation.
Today it was dark before 4 pm, and it is perfect to light candles and do hand sewing and stitchery. The piles of both hexagon blocks and stitchery blocks are growing steadily :-)
