Extra Quick & Easy Quilt for Charity by Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-Apr-2013
Details of the Charity Appeal
This quilt has been designed as a result of the appeal made by Ann Hill for 5,000 quilts each 40″ square that is needed to cover the Hampden Park Football Stadium in Glasgow, and it is to help raise awareness of Alzheimer’s – which is such a dreadful illness and affects so many families. The quilts will be used both by the families themselves and for fundraising.
More about the Quilt:
This is a speedy and straightforward quilt; you don’t have to worry about the seam allowance – as you will be measuring and making everything fit!
The rotary cutter and trimming back is the secret of accuracy with today’s equipment.
