Help Wanted!


It started with Zaki...then my husband went down with it and a couple of days ago I got it - something between a cold and the flu.  Coupled with the fact that I sliced part of my left thumb off while chopping an onion, I had a couple of sewing-free days and I'm behind with replying to comments.

Today, boosted by brufen, I thought I would do some no-brainer stitching and make a quilt top for Siblings Together.  


I used a couple of charm packs that I got from my partner Jeanette as extras in the For the Love of Solids swap last year and supplemented them with a few of my own scraps and some low volume charms. It's a pretty mix of blues, oranges, yellows, greens and pinks. It measures 49.5" x  49.5"


*edited to add* I have a lovely helpful now - thank you so much to lovely Jude!

I'm going to put a thread in the flickr group but thought I might mention it here first.  The postage like many places now is prohibitive here in Morocco - especially when sending internationally.  If there is a UK peep who would like to help Lynne's drive for quilts for Siblings Together but perhaps hasn't got the time to make a whole quilt but could, if I sent them this top, assemble it and quilt it then please email me at ajlzeiddaratgmaildotcom. Thank you! Please leave a comment even if you can't help :)

Linking up with Let's Get Aquainted!

This top is so colorful! It looks great. I hope you find someone soon as I am not in the UK - but even if, unfortunately I do not have matching charms therefore!

Your quilt top is so pretty- I hope someone comes to your rescue! I'm no help- postage from Australia is similar. Cheaper to jump on a plane myself!!

I'm so sorry you've had a bumpy road lately -- you sound like you belong at my house! In the past two weeks, we've had a sliced hand, a heart scare, the flu, a sprained ankle...sheesh...

Love the quilt. Sometimes simple really is best!

Hope you all feel better soon!
