Just a simple little quilt, crib size, finish. I started the top in 2004! The pattern inspiration came from old antique Dutch crib quilts.
The white fabric with the little flowers was a handkerchief and small tray cover made by my mother-in-law. Although the edges were worn, I could use the middle parts for these patches and made a top in remembrance of her. I chose the other fabrics, because I thought they could have been her colours as well.
The initials of her surname and maiden name are written in the middle with the year of her birth: 1918 and the year she passed away, 2004. I admired her because she had a strong personality, was a positive thinking woman, could be very strict, but took care of her little family the best she could, no matter what.
At the back is a lovely bird fabric. I saved it for several years. It feels good to finally have made use of it.
