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 …
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
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
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!
If you are interested in making a quilt for the London Olympics
check out the web site:
“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”
