Memories of the past

Before I emigrated from England in 1960 to Canada, I started this quilt from bits of left over fabrics from skirts and dresses I had made for myself. it's completely hand stitched. I used 6-sided paper pieces and wrapped the pieces of fabric around them and tacked them all separately. Then I oversewed them together. Well, I don't like brown and I didn't finish it. When I joined our Seniors club about seven years ago I donated it to the Club where it sat in a cupboard for another few years. Well one Tuesday when I wasn't there, out it came, into the frame and the ladies went to work! I'm so pleased it didn't end up in Goodwill!
