At 5.07pm, Melle bids RM188.


A back-to-basics simple design of squares and rectangles.

All cotton material, measuring 42 inches by 71.5 inches.

This is a two-layered patchwork without padding in between.


The Turtle Parade cloth is contributed by Ng Chen Chen.

Thank you very much, Chen Chen.

I matched it with our own plain pastel cloth.


The top-stitching and backing is done by my mum.


The top design was supervised entirely by Ginger from the PatioCat Patchwork Co.


Every step of the way, under close supervision.


This blanket was sewn during my hand-stitching days, so the top design is entirely hand-sewn.


Will this blanket be yours?

Happy Bidding!
