My quilting club suggested last week...

... that I specialised in "Speed quilting", and I decided not to disappoint!  I was on the train quite a lot this weekend, so on Thursday I made up a simple lap sized quilt sandwich using some patchwork effect cotton and matching reverse, then big-stitch hand quilted it on the train (quite convenient, as it turned out, because it was pretty draughty and this way I had a blanket over my legs without looking like an invalid...).  Obviously, I couldn't resist finishing it yesterday, so here it is:

I hope the Linus Project will find a little boy to love this one very soon!

Quilting Club runs on 3rd Tuesdays, the next one is February 18th, 7:30 - 9:30, cost only £5 includes refreshments. All standards welcome; help, equipment and advice offered freely.  I hope to see you there, do get in touch for more information.
