Lets get quilting for the Siblings Together Camps 2018.

It's incredible to think that we're fast approaching the 2018 Siblings Together camps and there are lots of quilters busying away making quilts to gift to the children attending the camps.

Jenny has been busy putting together, and quilting, a quilt made from blocks donated by a group who met at the Thread House Retreat. These ladies have formed a bee which will now be making group quilts for Siblings Together. What a wonderful way to keep in contact with new friends made at the retreat.

The blocks which make up the quilt below were generously donated by Carolyn Forster and Jen kindly volunteered to work her magic and turn and them into a beautiful quilt. 

She is now busy with the quilting using a combination of hand and machine quilting.

Jen has also been busy putting together a bright and cheerful quilt from blocks made by members of Siblings Together Bee 1.

Maria is also a member of bee 1 and has been quilting her bee quilt. Her next Siblings Together quilt is on the design wall above the machine.

Although she's still ploughing away quilting the bee quilt she has already put together the second quilt which is next in line for quilting.

If you would like a label for your quilt, kindly sponsored by Prinfab, please email the address in the side bar and we will put you in contact Catherine who will send you one.

In July Siblings Together are hosting a creative retreat for careleavers and we are hoping to provide this group with their own quilts too. The siblings camps are in August and the October half term. Nicky is kindly collecting quilts until the end of June, if you have a quilt to send before then please contact her via her blog or email the address in the side bar for her address.

Any quilts that are ready to send after the end of June can be sent directly to Siblings Together.

We would love to see and share your Siblings Together quilt so please do feel free to send a photo and tell us the story behind your quilt.

Happy Sewing!
