Someone gave me a bag of scrap fabrics, I wonder why they were all gingham? Anyway I had this metal triangle and I used it as my template. Look at my applique...
Look mum - no hands!
A girl (complete with basket of flowers!)
All drawn by me, hand done. I'd never seen a quilt book or pattern at this stage. I'd barely even seen a quilt. I had though, read about quilts in the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. I wondered to myself what a "nine-patch" was. I think I was about 19 when I made this. It kept me busy for hours!
