I made this quilt about 15 years ago. it's a bit worse for wear, threadbare in places,faded, jaded, torn & worn. even though the fabric on the back of the quilt is older it has stood the test of time, faded but not torn. .
found a linen tablecloth at the op shop, just the right colours, blue & yellow. beautifully embroidered pansies. it was meant to be the mend material. in this case" the patches for the patchwork".
patches don't remove the holes, they just cover them up.......so i will wear my holes & tears & worn bits & just be me.
