This is a quilt I have been making for about 5 years...it's one of those ones that keeps getting put away until another day! It's for my daughter and is made up of clothes she has worn or have memories for her. I'm hoping to put a plain line around the square of crazy patchwork and the edge of the log cabin to make it a little less busy. It includes
-a bit of her bridesmaids dress
-her Grandmothers wedding dress (1945 )
-her Brownie uniform
-her school ties x 2
-signatures of her Grandparents, some of them no longer with us.
-her blazer and school badge
-some of her Nanny's lacework
-cross stitch she has made
-a batik tie she made at school
-the dress she was dedicated in
even her nappy pin on her first blanket!
Each of the little squares in the log cabin centers should also mean something to her. I am busy putting the layers together now with buttons, some of which are from her clothes. It is almost entirely hand made and to be honest I just want it finished now. I'm hoping to give it to her on Christmas day!
