Foot²Freestyle: the Virtual Quilt

What happens when you bring together a group of creative, focused and generous quilters, and give them a Mission Impossible?

Miracles, that’s what. On 12th January, we agreed as a group that we’d create together the quilt that was the goal of Miss May, since she would no longer be among us to finish it herself. Just 5 days later, the blocks are all made, and the ‘Virtual Quilt’ is assembled.

Stay with us for the rest of the journey. I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Add to that the miracle that all of these creative, focused and generous quilters found each other in the first place —- now affecting each other’s lives in ways you might not have imagined before. Pretty amazing.

      One of these days I’m going to have to investigate EQ… I made a collage in PicMonkey of the arrangement I wanted, and then Avis made it beautiful and added the binding! I don’t know if anyone noticed, but there are three hearts and a ribbon in the middle, to symbolise lots of love, and hope…

      • I have the EQ7 software, I need to play with it more. There is much to learn!
        The hearts and ribbon details is awesome! Thank you for pointing it out.

  7. Beautiful in every way 🙂

    I saw the ribbon and hearts. I agree Kate, we do need to be much more aware of ovarian cancer and its symptoms, so often it is misdiagnosed. I am half way through a ten year research project… How could I say no? I had just lost a friend who had been mistreated for gallbladder problems when ovarian cancer was the cause all along. The quilt is wonderful.

  10. Five days? Five DAYS!
    What a brilliant team you all are.

      I’m still slightly staggered, but what a great bunch of women I’ve had the privilege to work with! Not a one of them hesitated for a moment to drop everything and get it done. The real quilt will take a good bit longer, but at least Pat has had a chance to see how it will look. I’ll be posting about progress as and when it happens.
