SOLAK – My First SAL

April 2008

Hi everyone, meet Patch.

Patch is part of my very first SAL,  that’s a ‘stitch-a-long’ if you’ve never heard of one and it’s where twelve people stitch one piece from  a set of charts, using the same fabric to work on. 
Then, when all twelve squares are finished they are made up into a quilt which is then auctioned to raise money for the charity to help with the costs of posting all the finished requested quilts to their recipients.  A nice way to raise funds for  SOLAK  I think.

This Sal has a cat theme and I chose to do Patch because of all the different patterns on him and the bright colours but some of the other that you will see shortly in the finished quilt are dressed as characters, like clowns and Superman which is fun.

Here’s Patch

And here’s the finished quilt
