Folksy Friday - Patchwork Pieces

As I am still flush with the success of finishing a quilt in time for the actual birthday of it's actual intended recipient (miracolo) I thought I would create a Folksy Friday around this time-consuming, potentially thrifty and always fascinating textile art form.







And if you haven't had quite enough of quilts, here is a peek at the one I made, now gracing a cosy little bed. I took this photo before I had sewed the backing on properly, if you are wondering why it's so untidy at the edges. Meh. I still get that warm smug feeling everytime I see it. Those tumbling blocks are HAND STITCHED I will have you know, every one paper pieced by moi. Won't be doing that again in a hurry!
