it's a bit scary cutting into these!
last minute addition from A. Freda
Quilt top stats:
Single bed size quilt for babe Evie
I chose from a selection of old tablecloths, tea tray sets & doilies from my mum & Mr D's mum. Once Aunty Freda saw what I was making she wanted to add a couple too! We spent a lovely afternoon together going through all her own special collection.
Rectangles cut at 10 1/2" x 9 1/2 " Log Cabin strips from Old New Fabric Collection by Lecien, cut 2" wide
Careful cutting of vintage fabrics was required - some were quite worn, some were different weights, & some of the fabrics shifted quite a bit. I selected parts that had quite a bit of white around the motif to keep the quilt light & bright, and would also allow for some added quilting texture
