This is going to be a very big quilt….
I have been touched and delighted at how many of you have wanted to join in with the Worldwide Friends idea.
So far there are 12 contributions either already received or promised. Two Friends Fabrics (or FFs for short) are already integrated, and I’m about to start on a third.
As you can see, I’ve been stitching away to good purpose. The centre section has all its fillers, and now I need to think seriously about consolidating this section by stitching it together instead of merely looking at it pinned on my design wall. After that, I can continue making flowers. A few more of the dragonfly fabric, some of the mottled fabric, and then I can start with some more of the FFs.
My memory is notoriously bad, so I have started a spreadsheet to note down names, blog addresses and fabric design given. That way there will be no mistakes when the time comes to put name and tiny flag to hexie. If you gave more than one fabric, you get more than one name and flag! The trick will be to scatter them attractively and fairly evenly across the whole quilt….
I still haven’t managed to get out with my camera, but the weather forecast tells me we don’t have to worry about losing the sunshine any time soon :-(.
Onwards. There’s a quilt calling my name…
