At this time of year quilts can become quite at home in the garden. They change from being a warm wrap on drafty winter evenings to adornments outside.
I have just finished this quilt made with vintage fabrics in pale autumnal hues and love all the different textures as it made from old flannelette sheets, handkerchiefs, shirts and tablecloths - each having their own napp and feel.
This worn out rose, although faded and papery has it's own charm in the kitchen and these hot days make me feel the same!
Faded and worn ... I like it...
The garden beckons for more weeding and planting of seedlings raring to burst forth, but the quilt waits patiently for a tea break on the bench.
