A work in progress! Understatement or what?

As you know we are renovating a house in mountain village in Crete, well I am packing things in boxes in the house we are renting and look what I came across today. This quilt started off life many, many years ago. There are pieces of my favourite dresses, the kids shirts and rompers, its full of memories.

I think that this needs to be finished after all these years, dare I tell you how many?

Well my eldest son is 38 and my youngest is 34 and I think that I started it after my youngest was born. It was going to be a cot quilt then a single bed size now its about a double beds size. Only thing is our bed is a king size! Watch this space for future developements.

What a neat collection of memories. I remember finding pieces of my clothes in quilts my grandmother made when i was young. I wish I had some of them now.

I hope you decide soon on a finishing size, and get this one all done.

Are you in the Hexagon quilt-along group?
