Mum took part in the first year of the Siblings Together Bee - her first bee - and had a great time!
Each member was allowed to choose a fat quarter bundle courtesy of moda, and mum went for the beautiful Blue Bird Park by Kate & Birdie Paper Co. She chose the Broken wheel block, and I gave up my hoarded Moda Grunge Cookies and Cream to use as a background and sashing.
The blocks came out at 18" finished, so with a little sashing and border, the finished quilt came to 60" x 80", a bit of a whopper in our house! The batting was Sew Simple 80/20 and was kindly donated by Lady Sew and Sew. For the back, Amanda Woodruff of Westwood Acres generously donated yardage of a panel print from the range. It looks absolutely perfect!
We're not all that used to doing big quilts, mum and I, so the quilting became a bit of a mental hurdle. It didnt help that the basting had been tricky and had needed to be re-done twice already! It took a good bit of
The binding was made with the off cuts from the back, mostly from the same pattern area too, and I think it works really well. We'd like to give a big thank you to all the generous companies that have contributed to the making of these quilts for such a worthy cause.
