Setting out the Raffle Quilt

Almost all the blocks have been completed and this week we lay out the embroidered squares onto the lovely green and cream background fabric - just to get an idea. And then on Wednesday morning, we started stitching them together. I have today purchased some mottled green fabric to border the quilt in and will get on to that next week! The wonderful thing is that we have had such a great response with these squares that we have enough to make two quilts! Well done to the Needlework ladies!
I am off to Canberra tomorrow for the wedding of Sylvia's daughter who I have known since the day she was born (24 years ago) so that is very exciting! Looking forward to that!

    The quilt is going to look fantastic.

  4. I think I have just fallen in love with that stitching and all the colors.

  5. Thanks for your comments Myfanwy! I have finished the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. My friend has just left for Vietnam with the book in her hand luggage for reading on the plane! Do you have any others??

  6. Hi Fiona,
    I'm working on a game of Parlour Games for Modern Families - a revival of sorts! And also another novel.
    Enjoy the stitching. I am inspired to start knitting again.
