More of Flossie’s work…Baby Quilt

Here’s another of Mum’s recent finishes.   This was made as a gift for a friend of my brother’s – who has just had her first grandchild.

Almost became a catastrophe when Mum took the top with her to go shopping for a backing.   She had it folded up inside one of those canvas shopping baskets with handles (a bright red canvas basket).

She got saturated in a downpour on her way home and when she unpacked the top, the red from the canvas basket and run allover the stitched blocks.   Figuring she had nothing to lose as it was ruined, she soaked it … and the red washed out… must have been sitting on the surface of the quilt.

And just in case you’re wondering if I ever do anything… will be posting some of my recent starts as the week progresses.
