Little Gems

I thought that you might like to know that the Quilters’ Guild will be running a tombola at this year's Festival of Quilts in August of ‘Little Gems’ - A4 sized quilts made and donated to raise funds for the new Guild Museum and Gallery in York.

The Little Gems idea is based on the idea of journal quilts - these little quilts are so quick to finish, and are a great way to try out new techniques or ideas, or to try new blocks or applique patterns, or even to perfect your machine or hand quilting.

They have also set up a blog where participants can post pictures of their little gems. It's well worth a visit even if you're not interested in taking part with over 100 inspiring cuties already posted.
