Scrap Quilt
By Mandy, Little Red Pear

We loved this detail of Mandy’s scrap quilt. For the full effect see the single-sized quilt here (Mandy made it for her daughter’s new bed). The larger fabric pieces are “Skipping Girl” and “Giraffe” by Sprout Design (based in Mandy’s town, Adelaide) and the rest of the pieces are scraps from Mandy’s collection.
