Motor Home Quilts with a history

I have just finished these two quilts for our motor home .
 Most of the fabric i used was recycled, which included some Laura Ashley 60s curtain material  and an old duvet cover that was my sons when he was a child . He is now nearly forty.
I love the idea of making something from nothing just like they did years ago when quilts were made from used fabric which to me has a history to it.
The pattern i used for the blocks was called A Nine Patch. I pieced it together using my sewing machine and finished off by hand sewing in the ditch to bring out the pattern of the blocks.

  1. Hello Linda. How lovely to 'see' you! Your quilts are gorgeous and that was the whole essence of quilt-making from the beginning when folks had to keep warm so used whatever they could find to piece together. Like little pieces of social history. Hope you're well.x
