babe Evie's quilt {a finish}

a few of my favorites close up...

and on the back...

a few quilt details: 
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. 
Embroidery rectangles cut at 10 1/2" x 9 1/2 " 
Log Cabin strips from Old New Fabric Collection by Lecien, cut 2" wide.

  1. It is always hard to make that first cut in vintage linens, but so nice to see them used. What a pretty quilt.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I think A. Freda was a bit shocked that I was actually going to cut them up! Will take the finished quilt out to show her this week.

  2. Oh yes, I imagine I couldn't easily cut into the vintage linens, but it is great to see them being used. What a special quilt :-)
