Hopefully you’ve not had enough of hearing about Siblings Together. Today I have spent the morning backing and basting 2 quilts, but first I had to roll up a very big rug and clean the floor underneath it so that I could lay the fabric out on it.
The quilts I have been working on are:
Why not head over to the CFF blog where you can enter a raffle to win a bundle 16 FQ’s of fabric from their shop. Gwen’s other half is cycling from London to Bruges via Brussels (approx 360km) for the charity Brainwave. So for a minimum donation of £2.00 you could be a winner of a gorgeous pile of fabric.
This one is from fabric kindly sent by Jennifer.
Both quilts are being backed with a generous donation of fabric from Abakhan Fabrics. It came about after an email conversation I had with the wonderful Fiona at The Sewing Directory, she put me in touch with Will Abakhan who very kindly agreed to donate the fabric that I needed to back 4 quilts! To say I was delighted was an understatement, so I had a browse of their website and let Will know what fabrics I thought would be suitable and within a few days they arrived! Thank you very much to Abakhan for their support of Quilts for Siblings Together.
Now you may be interested to hear about a challenge set by Abakhan and Lily’s Quilts…
You head on over to Abakhan Fabrics and pick out £20 worth of anything that takes your eye. Leave a comment on the blog post saying what you would like to make using £20 worth of anything from Abakhan. eg. I would like to make a Jubilee tea cosy or I would like to make a patchwork Prince Philip. Five days from today, a winner will be chosen who will have one month to choose their booty from Abakhan, make something and write a tutorial. Will and Lynne are planning on making this a monthly feature so there will be other opportunities to win. The item can be anything at all – clothing, quilted or non quilted items – anything crafty at all really. This months theme is the Jubilee. So you don’t have to be a quilter or even be able to sew to enter a project idea! Get your thinking caps on quick.
Right I’m off to do some quilting bed!
