The Big Reveal – WIP update

I have been waiting for a while now to share this with you so here goes…

Nearly a year ago I decided to start a sewing group, which is still going strong. We are a motley crew and I love them all to bits. We vary in skills and confidence with our sewing but we always have a giggle, we call ourselves The Ladies Wot Stitch.

Hayley is pregnant and due very soon, we are all excited to meet the baby and a few months ago I came up with the idea of making a gift for the baby from all of us. Only Tracey and I had ever made a quilt before so we needed to keep it pretty simple so that everyone could get there blocks done in time. We decided on a log cabin design, all the Ladies each made 2 blocks using fabrics that either reminded them of Hayley, or that they thought she would like. I made one block and put the quilt together.

Can you guess which block I made?

We used bold colours for the backing and scrappy binding to finish.

Monday last week was our last meeting before Hayley was 37 weeks so we thought it would be a great time to give her the quilt. I think we were all a little nervous to see what she thought of it. Thankfully she loved it! She was really surprised and kept telling us how much she can’t wait to wrap her new bundle of joy up in his quilt!

    Awesome… so beautiful & even more thoughtful. x

  • Julie:

    Making my 2 blocks has inspired me, so one day I will attempt to create a quilt of my own……obviously with your help.

    So glad Hayley like her gift and now I can’t wait to see the man in it.
