I am making a quilt for Sophie, one of my granddaughters. There are twelve blocks. Ten depicting farm animals. One of a scarecrow and the last of a barn.
The top picture shows all the blocks.
The second picture shows the blocks and also the cream material I will use to back the quilt. The coloured flowery material will be used to separate the blocks and go round the edge of the whole quilt.
My Mum taught me to knit when I was under 5. She also taught me to make clothes for my dolls and I eventually made them for myself and my children. When they were gown up, I discovered embroidery. This came from the WI, then the Embroiderers Guild.
This blog will show my work, including anything stitch related.
