A few weeks ago I became aware that one of my former colleagues is expecting her first child. As I had done for another colleague, I offered to make a quilt for her forthcoming addition to the family.
I dived into my stash for a selection of suitable fabrics and bought 2 small pieces to supplement what I had on hand.
The first block completed.
All of the patchwork done. Now to make it into a quilt.
The mum-to-be was delighted with the end result.
It is special to be able to use my sewing skills to make unique gifts from materials which would otherwise be likely to end up in landfill.
