Have a fabulous Christmas and New Year everyone! See you again for quilting on Monday 11 January 2010 at 1pm.
Ruby opening the box of quilting goodies Jacquie Harvey so kindly sent us.
Wow, Jacquie, thank you so much for the thrilling box of quilting goodies! It’s very kind and generous of you. Ruby is going to use a few of the pieces of fabric to make a Linus quilt, and the rest will be used for a group quilt. The shrinking fabric we’ll cut up and all try for a project of some sorts next year. It’s already generated various ideas, from landscape texture to stone paths to flowers. Plus gorgeous embroidery threads and other bits … thank you!
Ruby's two latest quilts.
