My Favourite quilt, the one Iím most proud of, the one which hasnít yet been washed, and the one no-one is allowed to sit on, is called ďThereís plenty moreĒ.
I collected together scraps of almost every fabric in my stash and my motherís, it even has a contribution from a friend, who began a dress and never finished it, back in the 1980ís, there are also fabrics from the 60ís , 70ís, 80ís, and 90ís, just looking at the centre, I can see the remnants of clothing worn by myself, my sister, my mother and my niece, there are Liberty fabrics, a blouse here, a pair of Capri pants there, Laura Ashley dresses, my Nieceís little baby dresses, shorts I made for her to match my own. Each time I look at this quilt I see another fabric memory, not just of the individual garments they came from, but where we were and what we were doing when we wore them.
