This weekend I have been making progress on my quilt for my grandparents wedding anniversary. They have been married for 65 years which is just incredible - there's not a even card for that and I know because I have tried to buy one for weeks now!
My Granny really likes ginger jars and has a lot of blue and white china in her house. Their bedroom is also blue so it seemed appropriate to make a blue and white quilt. I was delighted to find a fat quarter of white material with birds similar to those in the Willow Pattern in a shop in the Scottish Borders town of Hawick. What a find!
Collecting the fabrics for the quilt has been really fun.
I decided to make a Scrappy Trip quilt because I have been admiring others' efforts for a while and the excellent tutorial seemed like something even a beginner like me could handle. I also thought it would be really quick, but it hasn't been so far! It is starting to take shape though...
