When not looking after me, my clever daughter has been sewing - a very loud shirt for her fellow from fabric covered with large stripes, barbecue tools and salad vegetables, and a small floor quilt for a friend who is soon to have a baby. My gorgeous girl is over six feet tall, and tries to sew all her own clothes because commercially made garments just do not fit her. With great style, she favours using original patterns from the 50's and often vintage fabrics as well. This little quilt was made from scraps from other projects and is machine quilted using a walking foot for the first time. Her special friend Squid the staffy was obviously a great help!
