Childhood QuiltCarol and I have been friends since we were toddlers. We went to the same kindergarten, primary and high school. Our parents are neighbors till this day, and although I no longer lived with my parents or in the same country, we still remained great friends. Carol and I share a passion for craft since we were kids. We did art classes together, often spent time talking and making craft stuff, and bounce interesting craft ideas of each other. She is a beautiful person with a lot of patience, sweet nature and has great ideas for anything everything crafty.
I used the humble HST to make a simple configuration to reflect on the innocence and non-complicated life that we felt as children back then. Our childhood was filled with lots of play, crafts and tea-parties with our teddy bears and dolls in the garden, and many other simple pleasures in life!
The overall quilt has a nostalgic childhood feel to it. It reminds me of how the days used to passed by so slowly and every play time felt like an adventure or a craft idea to be discovered. I can imagine us as kids using this quilt as our play mat, building a tent out of it, or using it as a picnic rug for our tea parties.
I made this quilt to thank her for her support in every part of my journey, for the endless creative ideas that we have both shared and will still continue to share, and most of all for our beautiful childhood and friendship.
