Would you like to finish a quilt for Siblings Together?

If you read Nicky's last post about the lovely quilts she made from orphan blocks and from a UFO you'll know that fabulous quilts can be made for Siblings Together from these unwanted items.

We are very lucky to have been donated some unfinished quilt tops and fabrics from Chris Francis and we're looking for some kind volunteers to transform them into quilts for Siblings Together.

Quilt Top 1.

Edit to say we now have a kind volunteer to quilt this top.

This fabulous top measures 77.5 x 69 and requires quilting and finishing. Maybe a long arm quilter would like to work their magic on this one or a less experienced quilter could get lots of FMQ practice.

Quilt To

This beautiful quilt top measures 40" square and therefore needs increasing in size to bring it up to the minimum 50" square which we ask for Siblings Together quilts.

It has a 3D effect provided by these little pockets in the triangles.

The quilt top comes with these matching 2.5 inch strips which I guess are from a jelly roll, and two pieces of fabric measuring 43" by 20" so there's plenty of fabric to bring it up to size.

It would be fantastic if you'd like to finish either of these quilts for Siblings Together as it would be such a shame to leave such lovely work languishing in a bag. Just leave a comment and we'll be in touch.
