My run on secret sewing finished a while ago!  And I can now reveal to you project no. 4 (only 1 more to go!).

My lovely Brit bee buddy, Susan, had a big significant birthday in July – you know the ones with a 0 on the end!!!

Well we in the Brit bee love nothing more than to hatch a secret sewing plan behind the back of an unsuspecting fellow member!

We decided to make Susie a wallhanging for her new sewing space, miniature blocks on a low volume background.

Here she is receiving the finished mini quilt at retreat on Friday!

As always, Susan’s reactions never fail to disappoint!!

The blocks I contributed were Special Blessings and a Shamrock!

Mini Blocks for Susan's 50th Wallhanging

I pieced the quilt together and Trudi quilted and bound it!  Isn’t it fab!  I’m sorry I didn’t take time to take more close up pics of it!  I was so caught up in watching Susie’s surprise!

And if you want to read more about what this wee quilt means to Susan (warning – tissues needed!) then hop on over to Susan’s blog.

It was a delight and a privilege for me to be involved in the making of this special mini quilt for a special friend. 

And more exciting news!

My daughter has re-opened her Etsy shop and is now stocking lots more of these cute quilting row markers!
