Happiness is....................

Happiness is........................
Making a Quilt with someone you love! This quilt was inspired by people who told us how much pleasure they have creating and making with a child or grandchild. The two of them trace, draw and cut out the shapes, choose the fabrics and then build up the picture. They share the sewing skills and have a really happy time together.
The pictures in this quilt were drawn by Grace Dawson when she was eleven - (now she is sixteen and sitting her Drivers Licence on Friday!) They tell of the happy times she has had during the year.....eating an Easter Egg, visiting the mountain, playing netball, making a snowman.. The blocks are easy to make - we kept them as close to Grace's drawings as we could and they can be embellished with words and buttons.
The good thing about making a quilt like this with someone you love is that you both have fun when you are working together and the finished block or quilt is something you will treasure for a long time.
