Little patches

I promised someone, a few months ago now, that I would post some pictures of a quilt I made from fabric scraps & samples.

The finished quilt is hexagonal and the sides are 90cm (35.5") every patterned hexagon is different and stitched...yes by hand! a plain centre - some of these are duplicated :-(

It took a few years to collect samples from the various companies, they sent out real fabric in those days but sometimes the pieces were just too small :-(

And yes that is a real ruler!

It was a mad undertaking but it kept me out of mischief, has many memories incorporated into it thanks to the fabrics coming from scraps left over from making clothing by both myself & my mum.

And  no I don't take orders! I used to make machined duvet covers but not hand stitched ones :-)

Hope you like this share.
