The idea is to send the "layerings" to the 2015 Festival committee who will then post them on this website and keep them to be sold off as prizes at a Tombola at the 2015 Festival in Durban, South Africa.We are hoping to get "layerings" from some of the top South African quilters so that when you do come to the Festival and buy a ticket for the tombola, you might be lucky enough to win one of those.

The money earned at the Tombola from the sale of these "layerings" will go toward defraying some of the costs of the Festival.

There are so many sources for the idea of  the Luscious Little Layerings.  The idea is loosely  based on the very successful  Little Gems idea from  Quilters Guild of the British Isles - which in turn was based on the collection of Journal Quilts from the Contemporary Quilters of the British Isles, which in itself, was based on the Journal Quilt project shown at the Houston show for several years, starting in 2003.

Various groups of quilters in South Africa have tried their hands at journal quilts since the first showing of Journal Quilts at Houston. Texas. Participants in the journal quilt projects made one small quilt a month, for a year.  Some people found working small was a challenge – some found it was a delight!

Making little quilts are  a great way to try out new techniques or ideas, or to try new blocks or applique patterns, or even to perfect your machine or hand quilting.  You soon find you have a growing stack of them.
