Bargello Quilt

Latest Quilt

I started this quilt years ago, then it got stuck in a drawer for a couple of years I forgot about it and made my daughter a quilt, forgot all about this one and used some of the red in my daughters, when I finally got this out…..you guessed it, not enough to finish it. lol so I cut it in half and matched the flow then used borders to make it big enough, just got the borders to quilt then the binding to do. it will be finished in a couple of days. Ready for my husbands birthday.

Ruths Birthday Quilt

My friends Ruth and Ray were both 60 this year, so I made them this quilt, it was Ray’s birthday in Jan but he had to wait till Ruth’s birthday which was on the 18th March. I made it as a surprise, and they were certainly that.! 🙂
This is the quilt in place in Ruth and Ray’s new bedroom.

Group Quilt

As many of you will know, I run a small patchwork group here in France, when a new lady, or gent, as we have a couple of men in the group, joins, I get them to make a block using haxagons, as this is a fairly simple way to introduce them to patchwork.

All the fabric we have used was given by my very generous Mother-in-law Violet Wright and Violets good friend Kathleen Slinger.

We have now started to assemble the quilt top, the picture is where we are so far.
When the quilt is finished we will donate it to the local commune where we have our class, which is Bulat Pestivien in Côtes-d’Armor, Brittany. We hope they will then raffle or auction the quilt off for charity
