Handmade Nursery Rhymes Quilt
My Mum’s grandmother Hannah and her sisters would have done this on the farm in the 1920s or 1930s. What a great way to repurpose the muslin bags their flour and sugar would have come in (which they also sewed bed sheets from). It’s obviously not a finished quilt and the edges are raw, but I thought it was too sweet not to have out for a while. Perhaps one day I’ll finish it, or it could be made into a twin sized duvet cover.
For now it’s found a home on the back of my couch, a cheery addition to my living space.
