Not thinking what we were going to do with it, we bought it home and over a cuppa we set about cutting it in half. We decided it would be a shame to just cut it for the sake of cutting for cushion covers and the like. Then Denise said she wouldn't mind a couple of quilts for her daughters. Well Christmas and the snow came and went and I text Denise that I would start one quilt, she asked if I could complete it before half term because she would be visiting her daughter at Cambridge University.
I folded one of the halves of the material into two and laid it on the bed, with the amount that was hanging over the bed I refolded it only to find there was enough material for three quilts each! I had already purchased the Dark Brown material to edge it with and the wadding and sheeting for the backing I set about making a quit with one third of the material.
As Denise had left the whole thing to me, I decided the best thing to do was to quilt each coloured square. It took me from Thursday 4th February to today to make it, quilt it, hand sew the handmade bias and put the finishing touches, embroidering Hannah's name on the back. Can I put this in as one of my 20 minuters? I'm a bit like a dog with a bone I have to finish it especially as I promised it for someone! One of my other quilts is here if you wish to have a look, one day I will put the first quilt I ever made about fifteen years ago.
