This week I have finally started to piece together my jumbled grandmothers flower garden patchwork, mainly thanks to the awful weather and the Olympics. I think I would win a bronze for my efforts. I realised half way through that it looks like a nursery quilt, I live in hope!
The colourway reminds me of the film Amelie, with its red/green tones. I'm hoping that I can fade the colours if I hang it on the line in bright sun...
Whilst I'm on the subject of patchwork I thought I would share my treasured book. I borrowed this book from the library, (yes I still use the library, mainly now to read amateur gardener!!)
I loved it, and wanted to own it, so this turned out to be my first purchase on ebay. Its got gorgeous photos, just my cup of tea!
