I had lots of bits and pieces left over from making Amelia’s (still unfinished) quilt, and they are being put to good use. Over the weekend we decided that Tali (the doll for baby Georgina) needed a quilt to go with her new bed. Amelia has been working on a kind of freeform patchwork for a while now, and finally it had a reason to come together. She handstitched 12 of the 16 squares before losing steam and handed it over to me to finish, quilt and bind. I think it looks pretty spiffy! The collage is just a little fun thing she put together using a bunch of the left over selvedge scraps which I kept, thinking they might be useful for something someday….
