So today I headed off down to Derbyshire with the lovely Katy and my two boys to meet up with my sewing besties, those of you who read any of our blogs will know that myself, Katy, Lynne and Mandy have been meeting monthly for over a year now and just recently Laura and Karen have been joining in too! Nothing unusual in that you may think and neither did I until it was Show & Tell time!
First up they presented me with two baby quilts for Hunter. One made by Katy and one made by Lynne. Both, that's right both are made from the talented Lu Summers new line for Moda 'Summersville'. How blinking lucky am I? I mean Hunter right?!
We didn't get chance to take photos of these quilts but you can see Lynne's here on her blog and I pinky promise I'll get photos in the daylight tomorrow of both of them!
Now the reason we forgot to get pics of the baby quilts is this:
Yes that's me crying!
And here's Lynne giving me and a quilt a hug!!
And this is Laura & Lynne holding the quilt up for a photo!!
So it appears my sewing besties have been scheming for quite some time and have made me my very own Scrap Vomit Quilt!!
I have watched this quilt come to fruition not knowing it was destined for me, I covet every scrap vomit quilt I have ever seen but have not got the patience to cut all those tiny 2.5" squares to make one myself!! Well now I don't have to.
Here are the photo's from Katy's blogpost published today:
And finally the most lovely quilt label:
I will treasure this quilt forever as I will my sewing besties. Hell I'm crying again.
