A Siblings Together Quilt Story.

This is the story of a quilt I made for the 2015 Siblings Together camps.
In the first year of quilts for Siblings Together I joined a bee orgainised by Lynne of Lily's quilts. We were immensley lucky to be donated fabrics by Moda with which to make our quilts. For my month of the bee we used S'more Love by Cosmo Cricket and I had a few fat quarters and some scraps left. Last year I decided to make a quilt with these left overs but didn't have enough to complete a whole quilt. Here's where a group of kind, generous ladies came to the rescue. I posted a photo of the fabics on Instagram and asked if anyone had some co-ordinating scraps they could donate. Of course the answer was "yes" and within a few days I received fabrics from Julie, Carol, Catrin, Jo, Mary and Sonia.
Here's the brightly coloured rail fence quilt I came up with.

If you would like to make a quilt to give some warmth and comfort to a child and help us reach our target of 100 quilts for Siblings Together in 2016 please visit the 100 quilts for 2015/16  page above for details.

  1. I must have seen this before but can't remember! It's so very good and so great to get even more from that FQ bundle.

  2. Oh I love this rail fence, a great scrap buster quilt too! I'm happy to write a blog post anytime! Jxo
