Klosjes & Olympic Games Quilt
Olympic Games Quilt
I Have had a good week with the Klosjes and achieved 12 which now brings my total to 80.
The Pumpkin Patchers came on Tuesday morning with their completed blocks for the GIFT OF A QUILT for the 2012 Olympic Games.
It was very funny they sat with their sewing machines at the ready and I cut and threw fabric at at each of them to make the small centre stars, as these were done someone else was at the ready to start sewing the strips together. We were desperate to get the quilt top together in the 2 1/2 hours that were together.
When they left they were all smiling and said it has been like a sweat shop that morning but we were all pleased with the end result. We chose the Ohio star blocks and I supplied the background shirting and they added their own red and blue fabrics. It couldn't have looked better in my opinion.
I just have to add a border and it will be off to the longarm quilter.
So it is a big THANK YOU to the PUMPKIN PATCHERS Sheila, Maureen, Jacki, Carol and Joan. You did a fantastic job.
I thought I would also show you some of my lovely clematis that are flowering like mad at the moment, when other things are dying back the clematis takes over.
