When I was back home in July, mum gave me a little scrap of fabric.
I took home my orange and turquoise blocks that I'm working on so it was just right.
It's a scrap from the first dress mum ever made when she was 14 or 15, so about 60 years ago.
I've added it to my quilt - you'll see the soft turquoise colour with the horses and carriage.
This quilt is destined for our bed, so it's very special.

The latest blocks I've been doing are gorgeous fresh pink and white. I'm following a stern that my quilt group has sent around. The block designer calls them her 'whatever' block. I think they look like coconut ice, a favourite at school fetes when I was a kid.
