A few weeks ago I was contacted by Gina who lives in the South Island,asking if it was at all possible to do a quilting job for her on very short notice, I said yes, but we had to keep in mind how long the post can take..............well all I can say is hats off the the courier services.....SO quick. From the quilt arriving in my hot little hands to quilting to delivery back to Gina, ONE week tops!!
What do you do when a work colleague is leaving? You make a quilt!! What do you do when you are the only quilter at the work place? Make a quilt!!
Gina works at a Doctor's surgery where a well loved doctor was leaving, so several colleagues all made a block representing her life & interests. Gina said she was amazed when she got the blocks back at the fabulous job everyone made, keep in mind apart from Gina, none are quilters!
Enjoy!.....................................(for the full effect of this amazing quilt, click on the photo's)
