Klosjes and Charity Quilt


Well I have heard from PIC in she is having an amazing time at the Buggy Barn and to finish off today she will be seeing the Quilt Show. I hope she takes lots of photos of her trip.

With the Festival of Quilts last week and catching up with things here I have managed 8 Klosjes bringing my total to 88. I can't wait to get to 100. The klosjes not me. I still have much sewing to do before I reach a ripe old age.

My task for the weekend is to put the binding on this lovely quilt which I have just collected from the Frome Valley quilting. It is our Shipton Quilters charity quilt for Help For Heroes . We will be selling raffle tickets between now and next April when it's our exhibition and when the prize draw will take place .I do hope we make loads of money for this worthy cause.

Only last Thursday I followed a pick up van with a Help the Heroes big sign in the back window It was supporting 4 young soldiers with back packs on who were walking along a main road in the poring rain. I felt a lump in my throat and thanked my lucky stars that my son was not in the military and not out fighting someone else's war.

    Your spool blocks are wonderful. I love the fabric you chose for them. Woo-Hoo! Almost 100 of them!!!

  4. Your klosjes are the alternate color for the knot! The charity quilt is just gorgeous...guessing it will "wow" everyone and the till box will overflow for such a good cause! I agree, my babies are not quite five...and I still wonder how I'd ever surrender them to a military! Talk about borrowing trouble, huh? ;-)

  5. I love the klosjes and the charity quilt - a really worthy cause x
