Spanish Tiles

This one was  also very easy.  It has fussy cut blocks about 3"sq.  I added a solid red border to separate the centre and dthe border.

A neutral quilt

Hi, Here is a neutral quilt from  an American Better Homes & Gardens  Quilting magazine, a recent issue. Very easy.   I think the chocolate fabric is a bit dark, but it looks OK.

This is the last of the group that I made.  There are still more cut out ready but I have other more urgent projects to complete.  Do you like my "Fruit ladies"?

Still more Runners

Here are more  runners.  The white one has  fussy-cut  pictures  of  Christmas  prints

Still more Runners

I think there are still more to be made.  I'd better hurry up or I will be making them for 2012.

Eirto is 2 years old

+ This is Eirto at about his second birthday.  He is following in Dad's footsteps ( a guitarist) and also "plays" a harmonica.   He is growing and changing and taking over the conversation

Another Children's Eye spy

Here is another "I-Spy, taken from an old issue of Better Homes & Gardens Quilting magazines.  Just a change of fabrics because I didn't like the dusky colours used in the pattern

Some colourful Table Runners

Some more of the table runners, I made quite a few in several colours, and quilted all of these with cross-hatch.

Christmas Table Runners

These are a few of the table runners I have made over the past few months.  There are still more to go, but I haven't yet learnt to do stippling..

A turtle for Eirto

Eirto is my little grandson, and he's just starting to talk.  I made this toy for him when his Dad returned to Australia a few months ago.

Another little boy's quilt

This time the Mum asked for red.  Do you think I met the criteria?   He sleeps in his cot under this quilt.

This another quilt for a (very)  young man in our congregation. His mum asked for  mauve.  Hey I'm starting to think these babies are arriving just so Mum can have a quilt made by Aunty Trish

Beatrix Potter's friends

This is the cutest panel don't you think?  The baby who received this one didn't get to keep it, his mother objected to the animals wearing clothes....she returned it and I gave it to the same day to anotheer mother who was overjoyed at receiving it for her little girl.

Camping in the woods, USA style

Wow, I did it.  This was taken from a 9-patch book.  It's an I-spy for older children, multiple animals but only one dog.   It even takes me a few minutes to find it!  I took the photo before I added the borders, 4" in dark green.

Another I spy

I wonder if you have seen this one already, if you have I'm sorry.  I haven't been able to publish for a long time because the server kept rejecting my photos.  I really don't know how this one popped up, and I have forgotten just who was the lucky baby.

'Tis the new year.....already

I haven't been able to discover what causes my photos to be rejected.  And I haven't been able to find who can help me with this problem.  It has nothing to do with the size, as the previous photos were all the same size.
