Mum has been a fabric hoarder for as long as I can remember - probably explains where I get my addiction from! It hit home just how many years my mum has had some of her fabric when I was looking through my stash for some pieces to use in a quilt I'm attempting to make. I can honestly say I'm definitely no quilter!
She was obviously hoping for a girly-girl, as in amongst the bits of material were several unfinished dresses, all pink! Either mum realised I was far more of a tomboy, or else she just didn't get around to finishing them. Whatever the reason, they've sat in her stash for a very long time, and now at least some of the pieces will see the light of day as a quilt.
