You may remember that January was my month to get the Brit Bee gals spurred into action.
I set them the task of making me log cabin blocks (2 each), wonky, traditional, hexie, whatever they wanted, as long as the centres reflected something of themselves.
Well, I knew they would do me proud, but wow! Just check out how amazing their blocks are!
Here are some close-ups to let you see the wonderful details!
It's really hard to photograph this quilt. It's 70" x 70" and each block is so personalised. I've no idea yet how I'm going to quilt it, but the back will be more of the lightweight denim you see in the front.
To me this quilt represents an amazing year with my 11 new friends, who mean alot to me. We have laughed and cried together these past months, and shared the highs and lows of our lives with each other.
And what better way to seal a wonderful year than to all meet up for a weekend of
madness craic at the Fat Quarterly Retreat in June (can't wait!).
Thank you girls for giving me a truly wonderful memory quilt. I will treasure it forever.
