This is again a part of my WISP ( work in slow progress) quilt. the size of this block is 16x8 inch, 20x40 cm. When all the blocks are done and set together it will measure 120x120cm. and hopefully becomes a nice lap-quilt, soft and warm. I do only embroidery on this quilt, no lace, no beads. It is a challenge to use as many different seams as possible.
I made all the blocks from old wool clothes, 2 blouses, 2 skirts and a dress. Never trowed them away because of the good quality and the nice colors. My fave colors for my clothes!
