New Cot Quilt

I have been busy making a new cot quilt for a family member due soon.

It is made with Elizabeth Hartman's "Pond" fabric.
Yes the same range that I made this year's school quilt from.
I love it and it is nearly all gone as we have made kitsets up of the school quilt.

It simple 60 degree triangles and the Mum wanted it mixed up with no set pattern.
A good choice of hers I think.

Her curtain fabric has the sea blue like the binding and the rose pink.
So I think these fabrics will work well. 

Back soon with a new machine pieced project.

School Programme Update

Friday saw my last session with the students at Redoubt North School.

We got the bindings on our quilts this week.

It was great to be part of another successful quilt making programme.

The boys' quilts

The girls' quilts

That makes twenty-six quilts ready for use.

And one hundred students have now made quilts over the last four years.

Nantucket Baskets

Cindy and I have begun a new wool project which will be a Block of the Month.
It is based on the beautiful Nantucket Baskets and will be a wallhanging.

This is Cindy's first block  #3.

And my first one #6.

Back to preparing the next block now.
