Aunt Pinny tells the story behind each of the squares that make up her wonderful Edwardian quilt. The red velvet patch recalls a fancy dress ball and a midnight feast with a highwayman. The green brocade segment carries memories of Captain Tramlemousse, the pirate. Gradually a whole picture of the magical lost world of the past is built up, full of fantastical characters and a rich humour.
