Patchwork Quilt



A little while ago I quilted this one, the quilt top had been sitting in a drawer for a few years. It wasn’t as hard as I’d imagined it would be and I love the way it turned out more than I thought I would! There are lots of memories in those fabrics; lots leftover from projects past.

Vital Stats:
Finished size – Single bed size(ish)
Quilt top – Bits and pieces from my stash, leftovers from other projects.
Batting – 100% cotton
Backing – A brand new unused vintage flannelette sheet
Quilting – Vertical and horizontal lines on both sides of the seams
Binding – 1/4 inch double fold cross-grain hand sewn binding in turquoise, leftover from Baby J’s Christmas Quilt
