With the show coming up in August, and the sale stall, I needed to make some small items to add to the group stash. Debbie gave us all some pieces of fabric with hearts on in muted colours and the challenge that she'd give a prize to the person who makes the most unusual thing from them.
Here's my effort with the heart fabric.
I was on a roll, so carried on and made some more smaller things using fabric out of my scrap bag.
That's my jeans on the chair in the background!
So...3 heart needlecase, 4 mini Christmas stockings, 3 pin wheels, 8 heart shaped pin cushions and a dozen coasters made from fabric not from my scrapbag, but from a panel I bought at Country Threads in Bath.
I've been quilting for around 10 years. I'm gradually becoming more confident in my abilities and had some of my work in my quilt group's summer exhibition. I'm fighting a losing battle to only buy fabric for specific projects and to finish some of my UFOs I want to get under 2:20 for a half marathon, sub 60 10K and run my first marathon. I've also recently been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
