Charity Quilt - Siblings Together Quilting Bee 2016

I am so pleased to share this finished quilt with you. Not only because I think it is beautiful (well, I would say that, wouldn't I?!) but because of the wonderful quilters I got to collaborate with over the year making blocks for their quilts and them making blocks for mine.

Here are just a few of the blocks I made for the other bees over the year:

We could each choose the design of our own blocks - I designed this 18.5" finished block and I asked for yellow, blue, orange and green fabrics with a white background:

My month was March and the blocks soon trickled in:

I ended up with a couple of extras so used three on the back (after checking that no-one would mind) and they went perfectly with some stripey fabric I had in my stash - I do like the backs of my quilts to be as 'tidy' as the front - do you?

And with grateful thanks to these fabulously talented and kind-hearted ladies: MariaNickyJaneSonia, JoanneSue, Mary, CarolJulie, Hannah  and Brigid, here is my finished quilt:

It ended up at 72" x 56" so a really nice size  - for a teenager, perhaps? And the very important label:

This is my 3rd quilt for the charity this year - my first one was a collaboration with Joan from Ohio:

My second one was an unplanned improv scrap-busting blue quilt:

And this last one ... I love them all. I do hope the child / young person who will receive this quilt this Summer thanks to the wonderful charity - Siblings Together - will love it too:

Linking up with Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts and the Siblings Together Quilt Group.


  1. This is a lovely quilt. Perfect for a twin bed! I'm sure whoever receives it will love it for a long time.

  3. I have always loved seeing the Siblings Together projects. These are beautiful.

  4. You've made some fabulous quilts for Siblings Together again this year. Love them all.

  5. I love your blocks - kind of unusual layout, but it works so well when it's all combined - and what "kid" wouldn't love it?! Well done!

  6. I am sure they will all be much appreciated

  7. You've designed a great block! The quilt is just wonderful.


I love reading all your comments, I know it takes time to write them but they make me smile so thank you for dropping by :)
