Stories from the Quilt

I thought it time to add to my blog

I originally wanted this square on the quilt, so I could tell my picture book story, "Tessa the Runaway Teapot"

The square has been chosen by many people and such interesting stories have been told.

A magic quilt evolved one day
From scraps of material along the way
Each square a memory of someone somewhere
of something about which they care

Sam was the eldest boy of four children and always had to battle for attention.

This beautiful storytelling quilt was made for me by a wonderful lady called Heidi.

As I look at this square, the magpie looks out at me. It is made from material from my wedding dress and my husband's suit. The stories I could tell from this. There is the magpie story told to me by my mother or the one about our unusual honeymoon where everything seemed to go wrong.
