Here’s a quilt my mother made for her granddaughter to celebrate her 21st Birthday, Sally found the design in a book and brought it to mum, “Grandma, I’d love this for my 21st Birthday, could you….?
Eek, no pattern, no instructions, just an image. So mum set about it valiantly, scaling up the image then drawing it onto a backing layer, sourcing the fabrics, so many Rainbow colours, so little time.
The quilt was displayed at the last Exhibition our quilt group had two years ago , the best photos of this quilt have my mother standing proudly in front of it, but she would KILL me if I published a picture her on my blog, so this one will have to do.
