    This is a quilt I made my Mum for Mothering Sunday, which we celebrate here in March. I used batiks that she had brought back from USA with my Dad when he was alive, so it was very personal to her. I machine embrodered and machine quilted it. It ended up at about 16" x 12" or thereabouts

    thank you to all of your for commenting, it is personal isn't it when you pour your soul into something new. But you know, I realise I love it.

    No, it was a black and white drawing that was given to me by a friend, an I interpreted from that. Because I had a bundle of batik fabric that I wanted to use, it sort of dictated the way the design went too. thanks for your interest.
