I have had a speedy finish for my Siblings Together quilt with lovely Rocky Mountain Puzzle blocks donated by the ST Quilt Bee that has now started it’s second year…
The Siblings Together charity promotes positive contact between brothers and sisters separated by foster care, kinship care, residential care or adoption. Some siblings may even be living with parents.
So, anyway, I requested that each member created four blocks using any fabric they chose but with a light/neutral background, nothing was off limits and no ideas which sex this quilt would end up being for. Fiona was on her holidays, lucky lady, so I made a few extras, but somehow couldn’t resist making just one with a dark background 🙂
There was such a lovely mix of fabrics that everyone used and this quilt has come together really well, in fact much better than I could have hoped for.
So here’s a few pics now I have someone here today to be my quilt holder-upper!
The backing, border and binding are all made from a French kingsize sheet and pillowcase set I bought in a charity shop a couple of months ago. Very girly and swirly and light 🙂 Remind me not to decide to add borders onto a quilt again, unless absolutely necessary. The outside border went really baggy because (as I now know) that I didn’t measure them correctly….
Thanks go to all the members of the STQB for making such awesome blocks for me and I hope this quilt will make some little girl happy. I like that it turned into a girly quilt through the collaboration of twelve quilty minds 🙂
