IN THE POST
I've received two nice things in the post recently; the first came from a US quilter on the Stashbuster list to whom I'd sent some worksheets. She didn't need to thank me in kind but a lovely box of fabrics came in the post. Next back came a quilt from the Quilters' Guild traditional suitcase collection that had been on its rounds. 24" square, it uses fabric "cheese" from novelty scraps left after fussy cutting and when I ran out of one background fabric I substituted another, Lastly in the spirit of make do and mend I recycled a shirt for the binding. It was hand quilted in largish stitches with leftover cotton knitting yarn off the cone.
