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.


  1. Beautiful work, Liz. I'm sure Nick will treasure it.

  2. So good see quilts going to fellas. I'm sure they will be appreciated by the lucky recipients. Great idea.
