Blogging A-Z – April Challenge – Q is for …..

Q is for…..Quilt
When I was a child at school, my Mum worked for a fabric and clothing company in Guildford in the packing department. She was allowed to buy the remnants of the fabrics and often did and stored them. Some thirty years on she still has some of those fabric swatches and has used them to make a quilt or two. 
I still have one that she made for me as a child, Made for a single bed, occassionally we have it on our double just for a snuggle quilt. I admire such talent and patience. The following are three quilts Mum is currently working on. 
What surprised me is that, the two quilt pictures below are for different quilts. Fabric selected at random, yet the similarities of the design.
