London Olympics 2012

London will host the 2012 Olympic Games and their are a couple of projects for us to get involved in one being A Gift Of A Quilt.

I regularly host a monthly sew day in my old premises where I ran The Pumpkin Patch, my very own candy store( Quilt Shop) When I gave up the business due to DH illness, I just wasn't copping with everything anymore( Why did I think I was super women).
My Pumpkin Patchers monthly ladies thankfully would not let me give up and still come for their monthly morning meeting so we have decided we would like to make a quilt for this project.

This month we set about our task. Everyone makes 2 blocks , Background fabric was supplied by me from THE STASH and they will add one of their own red and blues. Stars are our theme so here are mine to start the quilt off. Next month they should have completed theirs and we will have a total of 12 . These will be 12inch finished blocks and we shall then see how we are going to put them together.

Apparently they are aiming for 500 quilts to be given to each member country. They are to be a sign of friendship and peace. That's about all we know to date, so if any of you are interested in making one you can register at the Quilts for London Site.

P.S. You don't have to live in the UK to register to make one.


  1. What a great idea Sue. I think they are also asking for pennants too. Quilters are just the most supportive of people that I know of and is a great testament to you as a person also that they are there for you.

  2. One of my very favorite blocks is the double swatooth and in the colors I love. What a fun project and I look forward to seeing the other blocks.
