I bought this lovely patchwork quilt set - shown on my bed - online from a very nice lady in Christchurch some years ago. I think it's machine made but I still really like it. I love patchwork and I think this is a very attractive star pattern. Making a patchwork quilt by hand is on my own "to do" list and one day maybe I'll finally get there! I love the artistry of those who are really good at this craft and can't think of a better family heirloom than a beautiful patchwork quilt.
