If I know my Mum she won’t be too happy about me showing this to you- she’s a bit shy!
But, this won’t be the first (or last) time I’ve been in trouble, so never mind…
It’s really fresh and pretty isn’t it?
Mum if anything, is even worse than me at relaxing. We just cannot do nothing!
So she makes quilts at quite a rate, and has long run out of beds to put them on.
When Mum said that this quilt was just ‘cluttering up’ the house and I could have it I leapt at the chance!
It has been made entirely from scraps and calico (muslin) and is hand appliqued and quilted. In the centre of every flower is a button, a painstakingly, lovingly hand sewn button.
Can you resist running your hands through cool, smooth buttons and watching them slip gently, in a blur of colours into an old biscuit tin?
Neither can I.
