This week has just flown by!
My quilting group has a member who had surgery and now has to have chemo. What a rotten deal. We decided to make her a surprise quilt to take along for her appointments. She's coming to our regular Thursday meetings, so we arranged a special sewing day on Friday.
We had already decided on the quilt pattern, and on some of the fabrics. It was a tough job choosing 12 fabrics that everone agreed on.
We started with the cutting
Here we all are, ready to go! We don't look tired yet.
Now we're sewing the fabric into 9 " squares, each square is different.
We laid out the squares, there's lots of discussion about the best layout!
And here's what we decided on. Sandy and Melanie are looking a bit tired! We did have coffee breaks and a pot luck , it wasn't all sewing!
I'm cutting the backing:
And here's the quilt top with its borders:
Here's how our project looks after quilting:
Now it just needs the binding, Melanie is doing that, and it can go to its new home. I think it will brighten up chemo treatments!
