Birthdays, Charity and a special day.....

The following photo's are a quilt I made for my niece who is turning 21 in a few weeks. I made this quilt as leader and ender of a few months. My original inspiration came from Julie  when she was doing a 'string -A -long' that made me get a move on, so thank you Julie!
I used fabric foundations and all my scrappy strips. The setting was from an old book called :'Scrap Quilt' -strips and spiderwebs -by Marcia Lasher.
I made a scrappy backing and had fun doing a quick quilting job.
 Next to show you is a charity quilt I have recently finished quilting for the Round Robin group I belong to. At the beginning of the year we decided to make a quilt to give away to charity. Rather than make a block I volunteered to quilt the finished top, someone else put the blocks together and everyone else made a block and if you pop over here you will see some of us sewing the binding down.
As a group we have decided to donate the quilt to Project Promise it is a local organisation. We will have this quilt plus another on display and for sale at The Country Yard's Annual Exhibtion  this Saturday.

Next is a wee peep of something I have just finished and will be on show this Saturday also.......
