At the Quilters' AGM I was prevailed upon to make a quilt for the group's Into the Woods Suitcase collection which can be hired out to groups. Some people make exquisite pieces but time was short and I had a busy time coming up so I had to keep it simple and quick. I pieced the top on my quilt retreat making the "tree" using a technique from a Helen Howes workshop though it would have helped to had her notes there. I thought the environmental fabric and the backing newsprint were also appropriate.
On another note I spotted this crocheted lamp post on a trip to Whitstable.
