WPG Members 2020 Collaborative Quilt
More Blocks Needed!
Our WPG Members 2020 Collaborative Quilt is in aid of our Charity – Wicklow Dementia Support – https://wicklowdementiasupport.org/
The quilt will be made up of two different blocks – one a simple pinwheel and the other a pieced flower block. For all instructions and sizing for making these two blocks click here.
We have received a number of blocks but not quite enough yet to complete the quilt, so more blocks are needed please! Details of where to send the completed blocks will be emailed to members.
The background fabric must be white or white-on-white and the other colour may be whatever you like. Please make as many as you wish – just make sure they measure 6.5 x 6.5!
