Activeight!

Way way back in January I told you about how my 13 year old daughter was making a quilt for Project Linus as part of her Activeight challenge at school. In March we had the top completed and in the eleventh hour (literally) last night the finally stitches were put on, the quilt was washed and dried ready for her Activeight presentation at school this afternoon. I think she did a great job and she's already thinking of her next project.

Congratulations to your daughter Jane. She should be very proud of herself for all that effort, the colours are lovely too. You must be one very proud mum!

Well done, Rebekah - it's fantastic! You have done so well with a steep learning curve (most beginner quilters start with a cushion!)
Loking forward to sending it to a child in need of a hug.
