St Mark’s Quilters

For our second workshop of the year last Saturday we brought along our New Life quilt blocks – almost 300 of them! - to stitch together.


Our improvised design walls, flannel-backed tablecloths clipped to two clothes racks, worked a treat, with the added bonus that at the end of the day the pieces of a quilt-in-progress could stay in place and be wrapped up to take home.IMG_3376 We sorted our blocks so that the colours worked together - as much as crazy scrappy patches ever can, of course.IMG_3375 Then we auditioned our sashing fabrics to see which one played best with each group of blocks.  In the end we had four quilts on the design walls.IMG_3392
