team playing......................



When a few friends come together to make a quilt for a special friend that is having what some call a milestone birthday, it is all about team work. The featured quilt was all about teamwork, a few secret meetings, some sneaky swaps of fabrics & conversations.........but all for a good cause. My part in this birthday quilt was the quilting, six other friends made the blocks, or 'rounds'.


The centre block was inspired by Leanne Beasley's block she designed for Breast of Friends for the Australian Homespun magazine then in a traditional manner the next 'rounds' were added by each friend. As you can see I 'doodled' to my hearts content!



A few feathers here & there, some micro-scribbling, some echoing. I used bobbin fill, Madeira poly neon's , Gunold & Glide threads.


 
 
More feathers for the border........then off for the binding to be attached.

So what do you do when you are left with scraps??????????
.........................Make a scrappy backing of course!


Now I'm off for a very special weekend..................I hope you all a great weekend too!
