Mirror Mirror - version two

At the start of June, I found myself shopping my mother's stash, pulling out fabrics that were very non-me. My quilting style tends to favour a lot of white paired with bright solids - this time, I pulled out the most subdued fabrics, the biggest prints, etc. and got to work making a version of Mirror Mirror. (In chronological order, this one actually came first, and then I did the baby quilt second.)

  1. This is beautiful. Looks feminine and antique. I would think it was something my grandma had made. Thanks for sharing.
