It is a special occasion when we
get to see the finished QUiLT!!

Many times fabric goes out the door and we never see what it becomes!!
It was a real treat to receive this photo from our long time
quilting friend in England.

Helen is a subscriber to our “Charm Square” mailing service
and has used the variety of prints that we have been
mailing to her in this quilt!!!

Helen stitched this quilt for her Grandson who in now attending university.
She made lots and lots of half square triangles
and put it together in six days with a lot of arm
and shoulder pain!  As she was making it so quickly there wasn’t
time to fuss about the placement of colours, but it all worked very well!!

She had it quilted on a long arm machine all over and then
went all over in the ditch.
Her grandson was very pleased with it.

We were all Amazed at how well the prints all worked together to create such a Colourful QUilt!!
