Heather, the Linus Lady, had done all the hard work by providing a complete, pre-cut kit for each of us so all we had to do was stitch the various pieces of fabric together, following a small diagram, which produced the quilt top... just like that! Next job was to make a sandwich... using 501 spray... which was a first for many of us... then quilt with a simple design and bind the whole thing with what ever method we could.
Lots of quilts were finished and those that weren't quite, went home with their quilter to have a few more minutes of stitching done to them... they can be donated in a week or so.

What a fantastic way to spend a day... stitching quilts in great company for a great cause, lovely cakes, biscuits, tea and coffee... chatting and laughing and a superb re-cycling raffle as well!!!
This day will be repeated in the Autumn!!
Thank You Heather xx
