    Well folks I have spent all evening in my 'special' little evening quilting room, (the loo!!) working on our groups charity quilt. This will be raffled during our exhibition in October.

    The blocks were designed by our fantastic embroider/artist Helen, and there are twenty blocks in total, some flowers are the same, but they are all in different fabrics, some of our group have never done applique before, I made one and Elle has done a couple I think, tonight I have quilted in the ditch all the sashings, and a few of our members are going to echo quilt by hand around the flowers.

    I think it is sooo pretty!! The green sashing is much brighter, as usual, the pictures don't do the colours justice, I will try and get some sharper pictures in the sunshine tomorrow!!

    Mary, the detail in the flowers is quite spectacular, I will try and take some close ups tomorrow in good light so you can see how much effort everyone has put into this quilt, the green is like a bright fern...the backing is a gold marble effect, lovely!!
