It's interesting how recycle is such a thing now, for our mothers and grandmothers it was just the norm. Everything was always re used and all mum's vegi scraps were just put in a hole in the backyard, things were mended and even when they could not be the buttons were always removed and then the fabric saved for the ragman.
These quilts were made many years ago from old 1980's prom dresses (remember that taffeta) I went "yuk" when Mum first made them but now see the beauty in them, the jewel colours are so pretty.
The bag is made like her rugs, crochet strips of leftover fabric, she made three while she was here.
I love it.
