Patchwork panel




Just bear with me whilst I explain what is going on with this patchwork panel! One Monday a month or two ago, whilst I was in Burnice's cabin with Linda, I was flipping through a book when I saw a friendship quilt. A group of friends had each made a panel and then joined them all together. We decided that we would do something similiar for a Christmas present for each other. So we formed our take on it; each of us would buy 2 fat quarters and give one to each of the other two people. They would then use this fabric somewhere in a 12x12 panel to give back to the buyer as a Christmas gift. Then we would each make our own panel which gave us three panels towards our quilt. But what to do for the fourth one? Last month we decided that we should do a panel to represent Burnice's cabin where we all meet once a month. Linda had some magazines with her so we drew out a pattern from one, adapted it, and are all using the same one for our final panel. So after that lengthy explanation here is my version!



I thought this strip of ribbon was particularly suitable as it sums up our "craft" sessions! I learnt a new skill; pattern piecing I think it's called and it gives these really neat crisp lines. I have also been busy making Burn's panel (but obviously can't show you yet) and started Linda's too.


Maybe I will show you mine.....
