Quilt LocationQuilt address: London, UK
00/00/0000 - I made this quilt over the course of a few years between 2003 and 2008 (approx). It is all handstitched and made from pieces of my and friends' old clothes and fabric found in charity shops and junk shops. I would go for months without working on it then become inspired when I found a certain piece of fabric which I would add to the mix. It was constructed in groups of four squares which made it very portable and I have happy memories of sewing squares together in the garden, park and at the Hampstead Heath Ladies' Pond. Now I have it covering my bed and it sometimes needs repairing, at night I often sit in bed looking at the squares, how the colours bounce off each other and thinking about where each fabric square came from. .
