How is this for someone’s first quilt? My talented neighbour wanted to make a quilt for her oldest girls netball coach. With some basic tuition from me and Mandy’s amazing natural ability to quilt, the Netball Quilt was born.
Mandy chose a simple log cabin design with appliqué and embroidery using the teams colours. We selected a variety of fabrics from Spotlight and my stash and combined with them a hint of Kaufman Quilters linen in grey and Sketch on Charcoal. The blocks finished at 24″.
I can hardly wait to see the look on the coaches face when she receives this on Saturday night.
