One of the enduring joys of patchwork I think is that the same pattern, using different fabrics ends up creating such a different quilt and I wanted to share with you my latest favourite scrap quilt.

Here it is made up three times and just how different can they be!

Their destination is the charity Momentum (based in Kingston upon Thames) who look after and suppport children with life limiting illnesses and their families, and also to St.George’s children’s ward (where one my students is the nurse in charge!)

My thanks to Lynne Goldsworthy for the original pattern which is featured in the Sept/Oct 2015 issue of Quilting for You  entitled Sherwood Forest – I did make one quilt using her instructions and then rescaled for the three above down to a 6″ block.
