Marigold Quilters.

The Marigold Quilters are fabulous supporters of quilts for Siblings Togther and this year have made eleven wonderful quilts. Janice from the group explains how they became involved.

"We first got to know each other in a patchwork class in Chichester quite a few years ago.  Although the class stopped, we carried on meeting occasionally even if it was just for coffee.  Last summer we decided to hire the village hall to meet once a month and have a whole day sewing. Our first thought was just to ‘do our own thing’, perhaps tackling some of our UFOs or using up some of the stash but we really felt we wanted a bit more of a purpose.
 So, I Googled ‘quilts for charity’, found Siblings Together, and we immediately agreed that making quilts for you would  be just the project we were looking for.  So we pooled our stash and orphan blocks and worked together to make eleven quilts so far.  We hope they are what you want."
They certainly are Janice! Thanks very much on behalf of the Siblings Together charity.






If you are on Facebook do take a look at the Siblings Together charity's page as they are posting pictures of the quilts as they receive them plus other information about  what they do.
