was made and sent and received.
I immediately started planning. Boro quilts have been on my mind a lot recently & Gee’s bend often comes knocking around these parts. Inspired by the works of Victoria ( The Silly BooDilly ) & Kathryn Clark, I picked up needle & thread & set to work.
Entirely pieced by hand, I chopped up a vintage table cloth ( rust spots & holes included ;) ) , recycled fabrics, scraps of linen, some vintage silk threads, a splash of Liberty & lots of raw edges. I had so much fun making this and fell for the end result a little.

I didn’t add hanging loops to the back so as not to influence a ‘right way up’ or a front & back even.
All wrapped up & ready to go…
I think the boro style & hand piecing is something I will be visiting again :)
