I’ve started on the final two quilts for my baby collection. I wanted to go back to basics and make a paper pieced quilt (the first patchwork method I learnt). I’m still deciding whether to piece the flowers directly together or to break them up with a neutral.
The retro 60s fabrics were given to me by a lady I had met when volunteering at an older people’s friendship group, we made patchwork cushions which were used at a fundraiser.
I intend for this quilt to be made solely from upcycled fabrics. Luckily I have a big stash, mostly old clothes and bits picked up at charity shops. But some has been passed down to me by my mother , grandmother or kind folk as mentioned above.
