Wish Quilt

Now that I have finished the emergency sewing for the sewing kits for the Queensland Flood Appeal, I am making good progress on my first UFO on my looooooooooong list.

I still have a little way to go to get the blocks together. I am putting this together completely different to the original layout as I don't have many large walls or spaces to hang largish quilts
so I have had to make this smaller. But there is trial an error in prepping the different blocks
to get them all to fit in together size wise. Definitely and improvisational way of quilting.

I think it is coming along quite nicely and I'm happy with the colour although probably not a real traditional christmas colour scheme but I have seen this used and I really like it.

There are a lot of you getting things completed which is great to see.

I hope these bring some comfort to whoever receives them.

Bye for now, Happy Cre8ting ~ from Liz

Your Xmas quilt is looking great, I know someone who made this in reds.
Your relief kits are lovely and I'm sure who ever ends up with them will be very happy to receive them.
