OK, I don't ask for it very enough, but I thought I'd put it to the punters!
This vintage quilt was rescued from the Early Parenting Centre's bin years and years ago; a colleague I work with now had rescued it and stashed it at home. Now she's me and my sewing craziness, she wondered if I'd like it!
Er, yes please!
It's got gorgeous colours, and looking a bit ragged to use as a quilt or play mat again.
The backing is like a jacquard bed spread fabric, which has shrunk.There's no batting or quilting in sight.
I felt a bit selfish keeping it, and I make enough of my own for me- I suggested I unpick the backing and sandwich with a wool blanket, batting and binding, and hang it on the boring brick wall in the Maternal Child Health Centre I'm temporarily working in.
Any other suggestions?
Using it as a play mat etc would mean it needs washing- there won't be many volunteers for that!
I did think of cutting it up and redesigning, but as it's a donation to the centre, my time on it needs to be minimal!
