>JOAN’S BROWN SOLDIER QUILT

>


I made this quilt for the soldier’s, as Joan, (a member of Popular Patchwork site) sent me a cheque to get some bits to help me towards the quilts i am making with Di. I decided to buy some fat quarters from Sunflower Corner Quilting, as they have amazing bundle bags where you get 10 fat quarters for £10!!! So off i went to purchase!!! Got them, loved them, found a pattern and made this gorgeous quilt, which everybody loves so far who has seen it!!!

The background and border fabrics were from my stash, the main blocks are the bundle bag fabrics, and the block is called Anvil.

I just quilted it with diagonal lines and little whirlies in the border, just a label to do next,(with Joan’s name on) and then hopefully it will have a new owner who will love it just as much as we all do!!!

Thank you Joan for the donation,xx and to Sunflower Corner for fab fabrics!xx
