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.
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!!!
