This is an experiment I keep meaning to try. With what I had around me, I tried it, and you probably wouldn't agree, but it was successful. Well, I'm happy with the results, and I'm excited to follow the idea through a bit more well executed.
I also spoke to the owner of the quilt and showed her what I had done, and she was happy with what I had for her which was great to hear. I still have a few patches to do, but because I have been horribly ill and have not wanted to infect the quilt with my germs so has been put to one side for a while, which she is happy with. It was also nice to know about the history of the quilt too and now I am a part of it. Makes me want to have my own piece of history.
