In 2009 there was chatter about a ciggy quilt, why, I wondered, would anyone make a quilt about cigarettes?
Of course Siggys not Ciggys, a quilt of signatures makes more sense. I made my blocks and posted them off, they were swapped, and these are what I got back plus a couple more from local quilty friends when the arrangement I settled on needed a few more.
This has been a UFO for such a long time, firstly because it took me ages to decide how to put them together and what to do about the inevitable blocks that were too small or squiffy then I stalled because I was short of fabric for the outer 3 inch border, I finally found it at Lady Sew and Sew at Malvern this year.
I plan to put a quilt label with a map of the location of all the block swappers.
So the question to Jane (who encouraged me to take part) is how is your siggy quilt going?
Till next time
