an 18th birthday quilt
This is a quilt that will be handed over today to a friend of Andrew's who turns 18 today. He admired the one I made for Andrew's Head of House last year so I know he will like this one. it's the tried and true "disappearing nine patch" or " guilt quilt" pattern and we managed to get some of Nik's ex teachers to sign it( thanks Sarah). In typical teacher fashion though, no-one looked at the back first so they have all signed it upside down!!!! Andrew and I have decided to sign our blocks any which way so Nik has fun turning it round and round. The down side of making this is that I now have to make one for another friend of the lad who is 18 on March 3rd. Talk about being put to the test. Luckily I have 2 charm packs on the way and those quilts go together in a matter of hours. Have a great day.
