For the love of scrap!!
If you love scrap quilts, please hang about!
Di made this quilt at a class at The Country Yard using bits left over from her previous projects.
Scrap quilts tell stories of quilts gone before, " that fabric was in Dad's quilt !" " Oh that one was in Daniel's baby quilt" ....etc, etc.
Some close ups of the quilting...............
Di wanted an all over design for the centre of the quilt. I used a Madeira variegated polyneon.
This quilt pattern is traditionally called " Baptist Fan ".....but it reminds me of my childhood days of galloping my horse on the beach.........so I like to call it....... " horse-hoofs" .
I hope you are having a fabulous weekend?
