My daughter has bought me 14 panels of bird of the month. they are not too badly priced and they are a good weight cotton. I think I may be tempted too easily if I open an account.

Simple block patterns pre cut/packed just to get them sewing.

Equipment in addition to the list already suggested :a basic sewing machine assuming they have never done it before.

I think books are still worth while as not every youngster/or retiree uses You tube.

Well I have made a child's lap quilt/play mat. Mainly stuff from my stash. Eileen x

I bought a fat quarter pack from Aldi £3.49 before Christmas and used bits of fabric left over from a panel after I'd cut out the bits and pieces. I am really pleased with the results. I did stash and whack [?] method but cut the quarters into a 10" square a couple of smaller squares and a rectangle. The grey for the binding and border were also left over from a previous project. I joined 2 pieces of wadding again left over from previous quilts. I only had to buy material for the backing

They are beautiful Margaret and well done on the FM. I haven't cracked that yet.

I have also pledged to look more forward than back and work through some of my stash for Linus quilts. I also fancy doing some more stash and whack [?] blocks. Eileen x

This was my first one and it took ages to get my head around the folding.

So I made 4 in these fabrics and another 2 in different fabrics. They have been put down somewhere but not sure where. Eileen x

Another play quilt/mat that used up some fat quarters that I don't remember buying. There are also 6 applique animals that came from an earlier panel that I didn't use. I think they work together. Eileen xanimals play mat.jpg

it was a fluke that I found them to be honest. A small shop in a neighbouring town was closing down and I just happened to be passing. I didn't even know this shop existed. All the years I didn't know it was there crying

Thank you Reenie. The bibs were 8 printed on a panel. They have a light weight polyester wadding and then a cotton plain fabric on the back. half were turned through [bagged out?] and 4 had traditional bias binding added. For the ties I used 1 in strip folded in half and then opened and the raw edges folded into the middle, pressed and sewn in half so they end up as 1/4" strips. Eileen x

The secret to the fbrics going so well together is: the fabric was made with the larger flowers on each side of the smaller flowers on dark green. I just cut the fabric into 12" wide strips and put them back to back. A bit of a cheat but an easy idea.

I'll look forward to seeing your pram cover Sylyvia.
