Ruth Atwood – I spent lockdown time sewing my five inch scraps into triangle squares. This is one of the two quilts I made from them. I also used a bunch of those 16 patch thread catchers I made last year. For the backing I used up a bunch of flannel scraps from my stash; for children taken into care by social services.

The CQA project 52 blocks in 52 weeks kept me entertained for a month in 2020 and here are two quilts I made from those blocks. These quilts also are for children taken into care by social services.

Several years ago I made a sample block that didn’t get used. Wonder of wonders – I had enough of the fabrics left to make another one! So I filled it in with scraps to make a new table runner (cat blanket).

Cats and Geese is my latest finished project, beautifully quilted by Kaye Borthwick. I’m making good use of all those string-pieced fabrics I made last year!
