My grandmother, who had experienced many difficult times, especially during WW II, when she was still a child, taught me not to waste anything. That included cleaning out the egg shells carefully when baking and not throwing away items, that could be used for whatever later. Even though I get rid of useless things, I still find it hard to throw things away and find it easier to donate old clothes to the clothes recicling bin, books that I will not read again to the local library and the rest to the flea market box of a friend of my Mum.
Dieser Quilt wird ausschließlich mit der Hand genäht. Ich verwende hiefür nur Stoffreste aus diversen Quilts. Bei meinen Farbvorlieben (hellblau, dunkelblau, rot, beige) ist das recht einfach. I sew this quilt by hand and use only scraps from other quilts for this project. As you can see my favourite fabric colors for quilts are lightblue, darkblue, red and beige.
