As you can see a bit worse for wear..but it is 29 years old. I created the patchwork with hexagons using the old English Patchwork method of tacking the fabric onto card and then oversewing patches together by hand. You can also just see the Grandmothers garden design. I think I must have run out of patience and stitched it onto some bought fabric and then bound the edges to finish it, well secured by machine titching. I am pleased to say it is still well used in the toy box, being the size of a large cot for a baby.
So hope for me yet...........perhaps even as a proper quilter?
