The Sisters are all plodding away on various projects of their own at the moment, if they are not tripping off overseas, so I thought I'd show you the photos of the gorgeous quilt that the SSS (Secret Sewing Sisterhood) worked on collaboratively as a donation, for the raffle being conducted by Quilts in the Barn this year.
Our dear Sister Meghan, who is by now in Europe on a very well deserved holiday with a very lucky friend, designed the quilt, donated most of the fabric, inspired all of us to put needle and thread into action, then our gorgeous and very generous friend, Helen Hayes, did the most beautiful quilting, and voila..... here it is.
We tried really hard to do a "Red and White"quilt, but "white" is just not something that we do very easily, so we have given you our version of a red and "white" quilt, an "antique white" you might say....
There are no patterns for this quilt available, so you'll just have to buy more raffle tickets. Head over to the Quilts in the Barn blog, Quilts in the Barn and watch for further updates about the raffle and weekend in October.
Time to leave the computer and head to the sewing machine,
Till next time
