Charity shopping

I do love a charity shop and yesterday, as I had an hour to kill in Uttoxeter (quite a difficult thing to do), my only option was to browse the charity shops in search of a big bag of miraculous quilting scraps from an American lady who lived in Uttoxeter, quilted all her life and, when she died, her kids gave her stash to a charity shop who had it on sale for just a fiver. And I could barely lift the bag. OK, I'm in my fantasy parallel universe now.

All I found were these three garish panels which I am going to use to make three quilted panels - take off the red and pink and put something quilty on instead. I am thinking of making something along the lines of these pictures here, here and here. The finished quilt (made by Stephanie, whose quilts are beautiful) is here and is on my list of quilts I want to make, maybe for one of my sisters if they ask nicely.


  1. Oh! You flatter me! I can't wait to see the finished quilt.

  2. Love op shop bargains , good for you !

  3. the finished quilt here is very Charlie and Lola. I love it.
