So a few weeks ago my friend Michelle from RayStitch asked if I wanted to participate in a Charity Sewing night at the shop. Sure! Any chance I get to quilt can’t be a bad thing. Cassandra Ellis is a NZ Quilter living here in London and has a new Book out.
She was going to walk us through one of her quilts which she then just gives away to the homeless. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?
Monday Afternoon at 4:30 I showed up to find a flurry of activity downstairs. The machines were humming. I grabbed a bit of fabric that I had received from my friends at Anbo here in London and started cutting. 13.5″ tall strips cut on slight angles.
We were all on a roll and the blocks trimmed down to 13″ square were flying out of the machines.
I haven’t seen the finished quilt yet. Cassandra said she would send pictures when it was all together. Can’t wait to see it. We had a fun night making a quilt for someone who might be down on their luck and need a bit of comfort in the next few months. Winter is coming so take your scraps and make a quick quilt for someone.
