Thousands of tiny pieces of scrap material and non scrap, old shirts… sewn together, edged straight, re-edged as first edging was squint…. wadding and larger squares sewn together for back. Quilt is about 2 meters long by 1 and a half meters wide. Not bad for a first attempt at an adult sized quilt!
The idea of my quilt is it a gift for my husband- he loves the sea so much that every time we take a trip I promise to sew the name of the place we have visited with an image on the larger squares on the back. I will start with ‘Faroe Islands’ and a map of the islands.
Pretty much everything I could lay my hands on.
