A Happy Ending!
It is so lovely to be on another ' Kim Journey'. This little treasure below is part of All Brights - a long story, but a lovely one. Many years ago I had these orphan blocks - Christine was doing the same quilt. I thought I'd never finish mine, so I gave them to her - too pretty to sit in a cupboard for years.
Not too long after, Christine showed this quilt on her blog and I thought - oh, my goodness, how beautiful - it made me a little sad I had given the blocks away, but I was so happy Christine had made good use of them!
A very short time later the mailman arrived at the door with this parcel - tears ran down my face as I opened it and I had to breath deep. I decided to knit an edge for it and not surprisingly I have called the quilt 'True Friendship'. Dear Mum, nearly 92, now cuddles up under it in this cold weather . Thanks, Christine - thanks, Kim!
Another journey started - the very first block of Stars & Sprigs. I'm keeping Janet of Quiltslott company - now that's a hard act to follow, lol! Oh, to be in such company. I have chosen to make this one in reproduction fabrics with a vintage white background and French General fabric for the background to the stars.
Thanks to Pam for giving this opportunity to share Kim's work - I've just got a feeling there will be lots of others to join us!
