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!

How to make a no-sew quilt by Jayne

Here is a great way to make a cosy throw/rug/quilt without lifting a needle!

I am putting the exact dimensions here soon, so if you are interested, watch this space.
Basically you cut 2 large rectangles of fleecy stretch fabric.
You cut a fringe all the way around through both thicknesses. 
You then tie them together.
By tying them tight you can make the throw a bit concave, like this one which Jayne's 6 year old son, James can cocoon himself snuggly inside. If you tie each piece looser (but still securely with a double knot) it lies flatter.

This is a great craft to do with a group of women. Our Church ran it as a part of the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) program. One person did all the buying and cut out the rectangles beforehand then everyone sat at big tables cutting and tying fringes and going home with a quilt!
