Mum also made lovely friends with a few Tasmanian Quilt Shop owners. I've updated my Australian Quilt Shop list to include these new Tasmanian entries.
A special shout out to: Deb from the Village Sampler and the staff at Calico Crossroads!

Great pics.....especially the crazy quilted cushion and pillow.......the rag rug looked wonderful.....I made a crochet one for my dd bedroom some years back......take care....
They certainly did use up scraps of material way back then. I guess we do now when we work on hexagons. I find it very difficult to throw out even the smallest piece of fabric. Thanks for sharing the photos.
How awesome is your mum for providing you with images for a blog post! The old bed quilt is just lovely.
