Sometimes the sheer wonderfulness of other people leaves me speechless.
You’re all familiar by now with Worldwide Friends, my collaborative hexie quilt, drawing in suggestions, poetry and fabric contributions from around the world. It’s going well, and the steady trickle of squishy fabric-filled envelopes over the last couple of months has made it more fun to work on than your average hand pieced 1″ hexie quilt.
Everyone who has sent a contribution has written a little note or sent a card and generally expressed enjoyment at taking part. It’s been lovely to be the ‘moderator’ of all this international friendship, and to provide a focus for all that generosity, and I’ve been delighted with the creativity of some of the contributions – you’re all stars!
But yesterday, I received something really special. It was so beautifully put together, so carefully hand crafted and conceived that I feel it deserves a post all to itself.
The person responsible for all this loveliness is Annett, from Knettycraft. Just see what she’s put together – it just kept on getting better and better! The card is hand made – look at the clever little hexies all the way through the written message, and the fabrics are just wonderful, especially the whole fat quarter of indigo scallop print. That gorgeous cat panel is definitely going to feature somewhere on this quilt, too.
Thank you so much, Annett, it’s beautiful, kind, clever and creative. I’m so very happy you decided to join the Worldwide Friends…
