Hi, wanted to share with you a wedding quilt I

made for my daughter. It kept me busy so I was
missing for a while. The quilt are made from mostly
old linen, bed sheets, table runners from my mother
in law. Thanks for looking, Mary

Your quilt is so lovely, it brought back memories of the one I did for my DIL, I made mine from lace I had collected over time, fabric from her wedding gown and the fabric from the bridesmaids,

Thank you, Toogie!!! You if all people know why we keep
Even small fabrics and fabrics that have memories:))
She crochets and actually stitched the flowers all over the
Wedding dress which used to belong to me and
she had it altered to suit her. Am not sure if I am
allowed to post it. Hugs, Mary
