Granny Rules

With her fearless attachment to the sewing machine and a mean quilting technique, this granny seems unstoppable…

In amongst mini-sewing, Mum has finished and delivered the Double Wedding Ring quilt as the wedding present for the Boy and I. It is made from scraps of the wedding fabric as well as other historic/vintage printed cottons in shades of blues and creams. The piecing took about seven months and the quilting about five. My mum’s arthritis almost seemed to want to scupper the whole plan but she battled through and we are over the MOON with it.

I wonder how it feels to be permanently creating heirlooms? Must be quite an honour…
