After some time I got the square back and I have made a village quilt that is to have it's home in the village hall. A place that needs lots of love and making pretty, a perfect place then.
So today we hung the quilt and invited everyone along for tea and cake. So here is a our final quilt.
This Arthur's square he was the youngest (he had a little help)
These where my two squares
Plenty of tea and cake to go round!
We also used the village hall along side two lovely ladies that ran an event called Super Soup. For a donation to Christian aid you could some truely wonderful soups and home made bread.
All the hard work of making the quilt was really worth the lovely day sitting around having soup then tea and cake. Villagers just dropping by for lunch and to see their square in the quilt, a really relaxed time but a real sense of community. I just love bringing like minded people together for crafts or food music whatever it just feels so great ( after all the worry of will any come or want to take part goes!)
I think I will really strive to work in groups more often.
PS a litle sneak preview of my OPOW!
