This was my first attempt at quilting. I had done some patchwork when I was sixteen. This quilt belongs to my younger daughter and is one of two almost identical quilts. The difference between them being the colour of the binding. Both quilts have lasted very well, having been much washed and carried between home and University too. Rosemary was ten when I made this for her, some 15 years ago. Most of the fabrics here are polycottons and were scraps from dresses I had made for the girls and myself. The small patch of blue almost at the edge of the quilt to the left is acrylic paint – my daughter is an artist.
