Patchwork Mark 2

This is the other quilt that is stored away. We used to have it on the bed in winter as it's quite heavy.  It hasnt got any wadding inside but I found a very thin double bedspread in blue to go on the back. I coudn't think what to do with an alphabet cross stitch, so it was cut up and used as the middle of the squares, and then random material arranged around them. My childrens names and birth dates are embroidered in various panels.

On two sides there are little, slightly padded hearts.

closer view. There are 26 cross stitch patches altogether which worked out right for a double bed,.

Some of the material is again the kiddies clothes and others are what had been given or cut up from something else. There are some random embroidery bits that I did as there are no rules on this quilt :0D


  1. I think this quilt is fabulous. The random, scrappyness is great but it's all brought together by having the x-stitch centres and the dark sashing. Your quilt tells a story and that's what it's all about!
