With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Quick Quilting by Marion

Marion wanted to make a quilt for her grandchild. She is usually busy scrapbooking so went for a quicker method of making a quilt.
She started with a flannelette panel which has printed patches on it. She sandwiched the quilt with wadding and more soft flannelette on the back and started quilting away. But... being realistic, Marion wanted to give the quilt as a gift soon, not when the grandchild turns 18! So, (close your eyes if you are a purist quilter), she is using a larger needle and big stitches (about 5mm). I've seen some beautiful large stitch quilting at some of the big craft shows and it is a great alternative way of finishing a quilt. It's looking great and will be a lovely rug for the little one to snuggle up in.
