I started patch working in 1982 and I enjoy using whatever I have. I enjoy seeing something and working out how it was made and doing it. I enjoy fabric and particularly small pieces. My patchwork is not always conventional, but if you see anything I have done, you know I have enjoyed doing it. In our motor home we have a baseball bat in case someone breaks in. Because of this, I selected to use this bat for my design. “A patched bat” I was a well used baseball bat, in need of renovation. What better way than to patch it. Using scraps of fabric triangles down the front with rick rack trim down the back I could hang straight down the wall, ready as a weapon, if the need arose.
