Lily and Her Quilt
Here is Lily. You might remember reading about her before - coming to the sewing café to make dresses and also helping me to make a doll quilt.
Last December Lily had her tenth birthday, and I gave her a bundle of fat quarters. Being a true star quilter in the making, she was in no rush and stashed them away while she thought about what she was going to do with them. She is also lucky enough to have a lovely neighbour, Sandra, who is a keen quilter, so Lily often diasappears next door for sewing sessions. With Sandra she worked out this pattern, using the fat quarters and a few other scraps to make the blocks. Then they took a shopping trip, and Lily chose the strong fuchsia pink for the sashing.
And look at the result - isn't it fabulous! No wonder Lily is looking so proud, standing on the coffee table and peeping over the top at me. Just think how excited she will be once it is quilted and bound.
