I made this last year very quickly with a lot of determination to keep myself warm at night.


 I made it without referencing books/how-tos etc, which I think is fairly obvious when you look at it closly, but who cares when I have myself a neat little personal quilt!

There are lots of pictures on my blog http://jenniferbabey.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/snug-smug.html

The fabric was all my own scraps, donated fabric over the years, old clothes, mums stash and even my mums old unused quilt patchs.

Thank you for your kind words!  Smiley

I highly recommend making a quilt out of your scraps and old clothes- really makes the quilt so much more personal and your own! I treasure it so much!
