2016 Stacey's at the Gap Warwick

The beginnings of a very wet and very relaxing weekend of sewing
I am working on a quilt for baby Morris who arrives in July. Many family and friends contributed a piece of fabric of their choice and I had to put it together.

Quite a challenge.

I found a quilt on Pintrest I liked and tried to make one similar one. No pattern though just had to wing it . Hope it works .  Here we go.. a quilt that looks like a jig saw puzzle. using the most unusual  fabrics ...not one that matches the other.

The beginnings of the puzzle .. still some more fabric to arrive

Gail ,Sheena and Peg. Really missed Margie she was too ill to come .
