A Quilt for a Friend

A couple months ago a dear sewing friend moved from Brisbane to Sydney with her family. We have been meeting once a month with a group of ladies to chat and sew.  I was talking to one of the other ladies in the group and we decided that it would be lovely to give her a special quilt from all of us.  

Everyone in the group made a block or two and we were able to create a special lap quilt for her.  I choose the classic log cabin block and had the ladies make their blocks half grey and half aqua/blue/navy.  I LOVE how it all came together. 











I also quilted it and created a label from all of us to attach to the back.  I think the quilt ended up being 57" square.  One of the ladies in our little group created the binding and attached. It was truly a group project and it came together so nicely. 

I made a pillowcase to wrap it in to gift it. I never realized how easy they are and such a nice result. 



Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 


Cheers, 

Abby
