Description

Our friend Bob turned 70 yesterday. As his wife - my close friend and a wonderful quilter - died 2 years ago, I wanted to make him a small gift for his birthday, because I'm sure she would have made him something. I had made a disappearing 4-patch block a while ago, just practising the technique, so I found some cotton batting and a plain backing, and hand quilted it using big-stitch quilting. I'm relatively new to hand-quilting, so it's nowhere near perfect, but it was stitched with affection. 

I bought a black cup and saucer and side plate, and a packet of Tim Tams (Bob's favourite biscuits/cookies) and gave it to him when I had lunch with him yesterday. He was very appreciative of the gift.
