Fabric fun

I thought i would share with you some of my attemps at patchwork.I know not very neat, but none the less colourful.I reallly enjoy sewing but not that good at it.My point being, never be put of by a craft because you not brilliant at it, do it for the sheer creativity. The quilt at the bottom is has old as my daughter, 13 years old.I started it when she was little its made from clothes she out grew.I even did some applique feet, her little feet back then were my template.I like remembering what outfits all the little patches came from.What crafts do you like doing even when it gets the better of you?

  2. What a wonderful reminder of your daughter's childhood in that sweet quilt Joy, and I LOVE the little feet! Well done you!
    I haven't really had a decent go at quilting but don't think I'd have the patience for all the measuring etc., but who knows what might happen yet!

  3. I've never done any quilting Joy, but one day I'd like to give it a try. I love how you used little snippets of your daughter's clothing in the last patchwork...and those tiny feet are just too adorable! Great job! xo
