Quilting with rescued Victorian fabrics - Charlotte - 1

Having purchased an almost two hundred year old cottage, Charlotte decided to make a quilt using recycled Victorian fabrics. She had never quilted before but took on this mammoth task with enthusiasm and patience.

Whilst waiting for the sign over of the house, she carefully added patches to the quilt. 

The quilt is now taking shape as Charlotte carefully chose each individually piece, matching colours and shapes.

They are finally in their new home so I presume that Charlotte's time has been filled with decorating. I know that as the evenings draw in she will enjoy getting back to her quilting and it won't be long before this quilt takes pride of place on her bed.
