Sunday postcard! Fabric

My mother-in law, annette, was a quilter. This background is made of of scraps she used to make a fan quilt. Pieces from her dresses, aprons, blouses.! Her nickname was "bitty" (4' 11").
So I am calling this 5" x 6" collage, Bitty !

A lovely memory piece for "Bitty". I have a quilt my mother made with pieces of her grandmother's dresses. I treasure it so.
