A Community Quilt

Members of my wonderful quilt guild, NOTYQ, make hundreds of community quilts each year.  Many are a group effort, with someone cutting a kit, someone else piecing, another quilting and finally someone else to bind the quilt and label it too.
Most go off to members of the wider community, who need the comfort a quilt can bring, but some go to guild members too.  This one is for lovely Helena.  
I spent a bit of time getting many of her friends at the guild to sign some hearts, which I sewed on the back.  So many good wishes for a lovely lady.

Kacey over at Stay at Home Artist has so many wonderful ideas and we are really lucky as she very generously shares them with us.  You can check out her tutorials by following this LINK.  I particularly love her Mistletoe,which you can find if you follow this LINK. It would look lovely decorating Christmas parcels.  Many thanks to Kasey.
Have a wonderful Friday
