When you have something lying in your cupboard for over 27 years and you find them after a good clean out and wonder what you are going to do with these.
Yes a thing of the past called handkerchief. Something we don’t use very often now but there was no way I was going to get rid of them.
I looked at the number of sizes and thought I could make something with these and what else could I make but a Quilt!!!
So after joining each of them with an embroidery stitch so they did not need to be positioned exactly all butted up against each other meticulously I came up with the following haphazard pattern, but it worked really well.
Next I found an old quilt cover which was well worn and well washed and backed my vintage quilt
I thought this was a good time to do some more free motion quilting as the quilt was not too big and was easy to move around.
A few days later with all the quilting done to the best of my ability and found my shapes and swells were getting a little better I found the edges and my quilt is ready…
Can’t wait for the next one to start
