patchwork quilt

While fiddling around in our loft area after our new bedroom was finished I came across this quilt.I made it when my children were small and used bits that I had used to make clothes for my daughter and myself.It all looks terribly dated now but it brought back so many memories.Also how did I find time to handmake a quilt of this size!!

I think it deserves a place in the new bedroom either on a bed or as a wallhanging.


  1. Wow! I love quilts that hang on the wall they looks so lovely. I bet it was like taking a trip down memory lane looking at the bits of fabric. I have a small piece that I started whie I was at school that used some of the fabrics I had been using to make garments (Lottie wants to add some more and make it a hand me down quilt). It is amazing how things have moved on in the last 10-20 years and some of the quilts that are made now.

  2. Oh that must have taken ages. I have a friend who does patchwork and I love her quilts. I'm always jealous as I don't have the patience.
