Yesterday afternoon I received a call from the ward clerk at work..."You know how it is such-n-such's birthday ... wouldn't it be nice to give her a quilt signed by the staff ... have you got a quilt stashed away that we could give to her? or could you whip one up? It wouldn't have to be ready tomorrow - you could bring it into work with you on Monday!!
I just about choked on myself when hearing this and did manage to laugh down the phone.
No I dont have any quilts stashed away.... and definitely none that would be suitable.
Choke, choke ... I suppose I could make something .. a lap quilt
Inspired by this. Fabulous isn't it? and already having a triangle template I ventured to ask the patients favourite colour = Purple.
Rip into the stash , mmm not a lot of purple...pink...blue and anything else that takes my fancy.
A here we go
One top photographed in the dark... doesnt do the colours justice but you get the idea anyway.
I will have to finish this tomorrow as I wont have time next week ... a few days work, then pack and away to Bali (can't wait!! So excited to head away with my two sisters for a whole week!)
