Dinosaurs quilt to give a nephew story inspiration before he sleeps

The Dino's have moved. And my mom tells their story

For many, many months, I had the pleasure of harbouring a flamboyant collection of Quilted Dinosaurs . My mom and I made them together because we both love dinosaurs. It was meant as a present for my young nephew. 

We 'forgot' for a while because the dino's looked so nice!

End of October, my mom took the dino's and turned them into this beautiful quilt for my nephew!

He since has received the gift and is superhappy with it! Another quilt went to a happy receiver.

Have you always wanted to give a new life to the clothes you can't wear any more? For example, to make a keepsake of the old shirts of your grandfather or from the summer dresses of your mother?

The 'Quilting Out of Your Home' e-book is the first step to learn how to do so! 

In the e-book, I give tips and tricks how to upcycle old clothes and fabrics into useful quilts. Also, I show you how little you need to start quilting. There is no need to buy any fabric or tools to quilt!

The e-book is a gift when you subscribe to my newsletter. No spam, only the occasional tips and inspiration to become a sustainable quilter.
