Olympic Quilt 2012

Standard

Well now,

silly me,

thinking no-one would know where my new town is!

But as Penny at Violet White pointed out  http://violet-white.blogspot.com/

just hover your mouse over the High Street picture …

Top of the High Street in Witney

and

it

tells

you!

OK!

I am not very savvy when it comes to computers!

So it is!

W I T N E Y!

Most of the boxes have been dealt with and it is looking like  HOME now

so I thought it was about time that I thought about my promise to make

an OLYMPIC QUILT

not needed until 2011  – but I promised it by this September

(the organizers are wanting to produce a

book so, earlier the better)

I have decided

to make it mainly red, white and blue – our patriotic colours

and use the technique I learned joining in the  “Quilt As You Go” with

Penny at Sew Take a Hike

I already have part of a Jelly Roll of American Primer

American Primer Jelly Roll

which  I   L O V E,   LOVE,  LOVE ….

still I  would be happy to share it with an Athlete! :0)

So  tomorrow I will pop in at my new local fabric shop

shopexterior

and choose some complimentary red, white and blue fabrics.

THEN by the weekend I may be able to get in

the starting block and  GO FOR IT!

“The “Gift of a Quilt” is open to anyone, any age, any skills,

it can be an individual, a group of friends,

a village project, a school project,

a community project involving care homes,

day centre’s, all you need to be able to do is hold a needle.

We will endeavour to keep the total updated as often as possible.

It is not too late to make a quilt and register it with us.

In fact register before you finish it so we know how many we have got coming in.

The quilt here is a detail of one made by the Clifton Quilters for the Project.

500 is the goal, 271 registered so far”
