My May in Fabric

I have lost the habit of linking up to Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day but I think this month I have to and this is why!   

I finished eight quilts for the fabulous charity Siblings Together this month. 

Yes EIGHT! But I did have lots of help!

 The swirly quilts were made with help from Trudi, Victoria and Jo.   I just quilted the two on the right which were put together by Mary and friends.  Fabric and blocks for the remaining three came from Nick (middle one), Jane (medallion) and Simply Solids (solids quilt).  

I designed them all except for the two on the right.

And I had fabulous fun doing it all!  I'm looking forward to dropping these off at the Siblings Together office in Southwark, London.

And I also finished these two UFOs....

....which I started last year.

The left one is My Liberty Quilt,  made as part of Scraptastic Tuesday,  a linkup, which I co-host with Leanne, on the second Tuesday of the month  - you can link any scrappy project, at whatever stage, but only one!   I machine pieced and handquilted it!

The one on the right is hand pieced and hand quilted!  Ok the borders and the binding were machine stitched but everything else is done by hand!  

Bit of a record finishing 10 quilts in one month!  Don't think I will ever top that!

Linking up to:
