Just thought I'd show you a couple of little quilts that used to sit on the back of my sofa and armchair in the old house. They're redundant now as the colour scheme is different here and sadly wall space is also at a premium so I don't really have anywhere to hang them.
The left hand one is made of two colourways of the same checked fabric - I had the green for donkey's years and so couldn't resist the raspberry shade to go with it when I spotted it in the shop and I made this little chap in a nine patch and snowball pattern - don't look too closely at the points because there's no way they all match up. The hearts are hand appliqued afterwards
The centre of the other one was a sample from when I very first started that I dug out of the back of a drawer, added some borders and finished up for the sofa back.
Today looks like it will be a lovely sunny day here in Taunton if a little cool - but this is a minor miracle having sunshine in the UK on a bank holiday. Usually we get a lovely week or two in the run up and then rain for the holiday weekend. Guess we'll have to subject the kids to another day out with the grandparents exploring the area again - shame :o)
