has been gone 18 years now and as I was cleaning out yet another bunch of
'gotta-keep-it' bins I discovered negatives. Amongst them I found a couple of
quilt pictures. It's the perfect way to start this year's blogging, showing a couple of her
creations. I wonder where I got the patching bug from.
patched from scraps, which is probably why I tend to prefer scrappy quilts; and
I suppose it's also out of respect for who she was. I still have one unfinished
patchwork top of hers that I will (eventually) complete with batting and
backing - it will be a "combination quilt" - old meets new.
the pictures I've included here - which as far as I can see are made from (yikes)
fortrel, the quilt top I have is thankfully made of cotton or cotton blend
PATCHWORKING has become a passion of mine.
Even though I work at a full time job, I've dabbled in a patch here or there for the past 20 years or so, but this is the year I've really started having fun with it... and so far..... I AM having fun!
....but I'm also learning....
