Some of my patterns

Patchwork


This is what I was hinting at yesterday.

Back a few months ago one of the neighbours had a great idea to make bunting. Our two roads are really good at having street parties and we use the Queen as an excuse - if only she knew!!!! It's a great time as we have a road closure put in place which I mentioned here and some of the group can be seen here.

The bunting is finished but we had lots of scraps left over so some silly OG suggested we made a quilt to auction for charity. The gang (some of whom hadn't sewn for years) have worked hard to make the seven hexagon rosettes. I've been bringing them home with me to put together which is taking up tatting time but is GREAT fun too.  Here are the first 18 sewn up with another 18 waiting for me to get done before next Tuesday morning!!!

  1. It's a great idea! - very colourful, and you are putting your Quilting skills to good use too.My tatting time today was consumed by a squishy seven-month old bundle - I'm tired!

  2. When it's finished, you could send it to the Queen!

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
