It is a while since I linked up with A Quarter Inch From the Edge and
but here I am today with a real blast from the distant past!
In the mid 1980's I had a fabulous holiday in Tunisia touring in a small bus with around 20 French people. This bit was a shock as, having booked and flown from Italy we had expected to be with Italians! Having been living in Italy for nearly three years we had some Italian but spoke hardly any French.
We started in Tunis and visited the coast and the desert, salt flats and film sets - oh yes, and lots of Roman ruins! Of course we were taken to shops and markets selling local crafts and in one place we saw some amazing flat weave rugs which immediately shouted 'patchwork' to me.So I bought a postcard showing some of the designs
and when I got home I turned some of those patterns into a design for a quilt.
All hand pieced and hand quilted.
To see all the other 'Throwbacks' pop over to A Quarter Inch from the Edge.
