Wedding Anniversary Gift
This patchwork 'Trip Around the World' king size quilt cover was made for my parents. It was to celebrate their 25th silver wedding anniversary, many many years ago.
The patchwork was sewn by hand as I did not have a sewing machine then. After the patchwork was done, I had to borrow my then future mother-in-law's sewing machine to sew it up into a quilt cover. The last time I was at mom's, I made it a point to photograph it. Mom had stored it instead of using it, hence the crumpling. I laid it out in the sitting room and took a photo from the stairs.
