Frugal quilt

I've been lucky enough to acquire quite a large amount of fabric both through my own purchases, and donations from family members, including my mum.

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.

Something my mum started a very long time ago!
This quilt is very much a work-in-progress, but as my son's been complaining every time he sees that I've pinched one of the ones he was given as a baby to put on my bed, I thought it was time I made myself one. 

Until next time. x
