Wall Hanging

Thursday, 11 June 2009
As I said in my last post, we've been going to the same set of farm cottages for our weekend GTG for the last three years and they're fab - absolutely perfect for our needs. Anyway, the woman who runs them commissioned us to make her a wall hanging that reflected the farm and their animals.

We all worked together to produce this:

My part of the process (other than co-ordinating it all) was the finishing along with another member of the group so we put the blocks together, added the border, quilted and finished it.

We worked hard to make sure that we reflected the real animals - the cats are all the right colour, the rabbits and hamsters are the same as the children's pets, etc, etc and also one of our number designed the middle block so that is actually the farmhouse and cottages together with the family themselves.

It was extremely well received and will now hang in the conference room at the cottages so we'll get to admire our work every time we go back!
