My local quilt group, Lutterworth Piecemakers, will have been meeting for fifteen years in October.  Fifteen years of friendship, inspiration and fun.  To mark this event there is a committee challenge to make a patchwork item on the theme of 'fifteen'.  I have spent the last eight months scratching my head, hoping an idea would come to me, and finally, eureka!  I have decided to make 16 blocks (15+1) with the word fifteen written in different languages! Here is my progress so far. 

In case you're wondering, there is English, French, Gujerati, Italian and German so far.  I then decided to add to the challenge to make each word in a different font style, and using a different technique.  The font styles are self evident, and the techniques so far are needle turned, satin stitch, straight stitch and machine blanket stitch.  I don't think I'll manage to find 15 different techniques, but I have one or two more up my sleeve!  Now, what language shall I do next?
