About Me

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!

Pretty Group Project Quilt

In the past, making a quilt was often a community event. Recently I was part of a project where a group of us made a quilt for a friend. It was SO nice to secretly work on it and present it to her at the end.
It came together really nicely. The basic idea was that we alternate a 9 patch square with a cream coloured square. These were all shared amongst us and we could do whatever we wanted on the blank square with the theme of a 'heart'.


Working out where the pieces should live was a fun group task. Those squares were moved so many times!


Here are a few of the squares I made. 




 Then we gave it to Vivienne who is an A-MA-ZING quilter. She sits for hours and hand quilts. I think she did it in a week!!!

 

Ta da!
The finished quilt.
Seeing as I have not finished a quilt on my own for such a long time, it was very satisfying to be a part of this lovely gift.

 


This quilt was not for Jenni. Sorry Jen. 
But I still want to say HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY for you today!!!

  2. I love it. So sad it is not for me. If I had done all that work I couldn't give it away either.
