The Hexagon Quilt

My lovely friend Liz gave me a quilt top that was made by her friend Pat Hansford, who would you believe is 86 years young. Liz had been telling her about the Siblings Together group we belong to, and as the idea of Siblings Not Together was something she had experienced and was therefore very close to her heart, she gave this beautiful hand pieced quilt.The hexagons are just 1inch and there are hundreds of them.

She had bought this wonderful backing of tropical fishes, so it was duly sandwiched and bound.

 And Liz, myself and the lovely Alison tied it all over at the Bee today. With three of us doing it it did not take long, and this is the Finished Quilt ready to be posted off to the Siblings Together Charity.
So a big thank you to Pat for her lovely Quilt.
This will make one child very Happy :0)

Liz, Pippa and Ann were making Hedgehogs for this months blocks for ST2 as Ann is the Momma of the month. Photos of mine were in the last blog post.

The first Owl quilt is all finished and ready to be posted off with the beautiful hexie quilt.

Sorry, not a good photo, the sun came out and that is rare as you know for England in January and February, but we are so pleased to see it we do not complain..:0) only when our photos could look better without it maybe.

Stay safe and keep stitching.......................Doti..
