So now that I’ve finally been able to reveal the details of my move (phew!) I can finally share a few other things including this quilt!
You may remember earlier this year I shared these tic tac toe blocks that I’d chosen for my beehive group. The beehive girls were wonderful and they all sent some fantastic blocks, but it wasn’t enough for a whole quilt. I confided in my friend Abby that I really wanted to finish the quilt before I moved but I was worried I wouldn’t be able to power through making so many blocks.
Armed with this information, Abby snuck off and arranged a big group of our online sewing friends to make a block and send it to me!!! All of a sudden they started arriving in my mail box…and within 6 weeks I had enough to complete my quilt!
They also contributed to a voucher to pay for my quilt to be long armed, and it’s currently off at Ladybug Quilting being done! So exciting.
To Abby for organising this, and to all of my wonderful friends and my Beehive who contributed to this quilt A HUGE THANK YOU. It is very special to me and I will cherish it.
I look forward to sharing the finished quilt very soon!
