Di Ford-Hall - A Tribute Booklet and Pattern
A tribute booklet and "Windermere" pattern are shortly to be released in honour of Di Ford-Hall's memory.
It will be a beautiful full colour 32-page booklet which will include a very detailed pattern for "Windermere", her last quilt pattern, as well as a written tribute about Di with some photos. A small donation from each booklet sold will go to The Leukaemia Foundation.
Throughout her treatment in 2019, Di was working on this quilt, named after the beautiful fabric range she had just released with Andover. Although it was coming together a little slower than she would have liked, it was a real joy for her on the days that she was up to sewing.
Unfortunately Di passed away before she could complete "Windermere", so her friends from The Secret Sewing Sisters put it together and finished it and then Helen Hayes quilted it. Lenora Jenkins from Elm Grove Patchwork is assisting with completion of the pattern.
At this stage (Feb 2021), the booklet is expected to be available mid to late March.
