This quilt was inspired by a photograph of my Granddaughter taken when she was not quite two years old. Having grown up in Leeds, my lovely daughter and her partner decided to move to live in the countryside and found a cottage completely surrounded by farmland.. Long walks along extremely muddy paths followed and having been a city girl all her life, my daughter suddenly discovered nature! The countryside where they live is very flat and featureless, but ideal territory for a toddler learning to find her feet. Isobel is now eleven and will be going to high school in September, but to us she is still that little girl starting on a long journey.
I used my own handdyed fabrics and all the quilting and embroidery were done on my sewing machine.
