Since we’re allowed out to play twice again this edition of the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, I thought I would dust off another favourite finish from this year and show her off again:
Around 18 months ago I was invited to join a great group of ladies as part of the Stitch Tease Bee. During the year that this entirely secret bee ran, we sent out our starter blocks into the world and then… well, then our bee mates teased and tortured us with sneak peeks, pixellated images and nothing like what we would finally get back!
I sent these 2 blocks on their journey, with the request that my bee mates take inspiration from the vehicles in the Birch Organics Circa 52 collection, which included space ships, cars, camper vans, mopeds and bikes.
Over the next year the following ladies added their blocks:
I had originally intended to use what came back as a throw quilt, but when I saw it, I realised there was no way it could be anything other than a wall hanging:
Just look at the details in the blocks (pre quilting)
|Di’s teeny writing of the car’s name|
|Hadley’s suicidal herons|
|Di’s rendition of my Jack on the back of her bike|
|Danny’s friendly robot|
|Annabella’s curvy rocket|
|Helen’s 50’s cars|
|Susan’s VW van|
Thank you so much ladies, I got a truly unique wall hanging out of this, so I’m entering this into the Wall Hanging category in the Festival, I hope you all love it as much as me!
