Many, many years ago in a little far away country lived a girl who oftenly went to movie with her daddy to watch movies about wild, wild west. In these movies she saw wonderful bed blankets made from many colorful small pieces of fabrics. And of course, she wanted to have one, but in her far, far away country no one knows how to make it. Then, some decades later clever men invented internet and our little girl (being granny in meantime) finally learned how to make a quilt. From many scraps , in all the wonderful colours in the world.

  16. I found your blog at Quilting bloggers. What a beautiful quilt! It must have really been a lot of work, I can understand it took time.
    I also liked the fabrics you got from South Africa very much, so colorful! You were very lucky to get all them.
