Jess' First Quilt

Another little project i have going at the moment is helping a friend of mine (Jess), to complete her first quilt for her Mum's very important 60th birthday.

Jess had her Mum choose the fabric, which is Winchester by Andover Fabrics from The Fat Quarter Shop and we're using a Hatched and Patched pattern called Town of Plenty (minus the stitchery blocks) as it's a nice simple quilt for a first attempt.

Here is a sneak peak of some of Jess' blocks to date:

Jess has already completed nearly 50 blocks and for a complete non-sewer, she's doing a great job............ and very little un-picking has been required so far! One more sewing day and the top should be complete.

And Jess....... You're not to show your Mum any more now until it's finished!

Until next time, Happy Stitching
