Patchwork Quilt Club

Beautiful patchwork quilt patten and color scheme from Couturier magazine (in Japanese). These quilt brought back memories of crafting in school.

Quilt with patchwork and embroidery on a couchI always viewed quilting as a communal activity – many women sitting together chatting and doing their bit. I thought the baby who’ll be gifted the quilt is one lucky girl – so many people who loved her enough to come together for one big project.

Patchwork quilt on bedI sewed patches for a quilt for an Arts and Crafts project when I was about 9 or 10 years old. Our teacher got us all the craft supplies. There were a couple of us working on the project and it took us months. At the end of it, my teacher helped us put the whole thing together but I never got to see the result. :(

I never had a quilt made in my honour but I do have a lot of knitted or crocheted stuff made by my grandma: complete bedding sets – pillows, baby blankets, bed sheet – baby clothes and toys. I guess I’m a pretty lucky girl too. :)
