The idea came from the British Patchwork Association's "Little Gems" project http://littlegemquilts.wordpress.com/
that culminated in a tombola stand at the Birmingham Festival of Quilts in 2011.That project had its origins in the Journal Quilts exhibitions which ran for several years at the Houston Quilt Festival.
Beth contacted the British Patchwork Association and they have graciously given us permission to develop our own "Little Gems" project- except we are calling it "Luscious Little Layerings". We will also have a tombola stand at the National Quilting Festival in Durban in 2015 and the proceeds will go towards the costs of that festival.
The website will be up at the end of May with Journal Quilts by members of various groups and we encourage quilters in South Africa and abroad to participate in this venture.There will be ideas and basic patterns on the website and photos of the quilts will be published on the site as they come in.
