Self Portrait Challenge - Patterns 4



Patterns From My History pt.4

This blanket was mine as a little girl. I love the pastel colors, and all the tiny squares of different vintage fabrics, especially the ones that have tiny Asian girls among flowers (top R. corner, 4th square in; top L. corner, 2nd square down) I am unsure of what past-generation relative made this, but it is indeed a family treasure.


I have a memory of sitting on it in my backyard during summer break, having a tea party with some stuffed animals while I shooed flies away & the sun warmed my head.


Time has flown by on gossamer wings, and now I am here on the same blanket in my own backyard with my daughter, laughing together on another hot summer day.
