Sunshine In Your Pocket baby quilt

I'm sorry these pics are not very good, for some reason some of my pictures don't want to come out nice and clear, and as this quilt has already gone back to its owner, they're the only ones I've got.  Sorry about that.... (and the whole quilt is down the bottom not at the top - I'm not having a good day today am I?)

Anyway this little beauty is a Red Brolly Design and is from a little book called Sunshine in Your Pocket.  I think these little peas with their little faces are SO cute.

It is quilted with freehand flowers, hearts, leaves and swirls with some ditching around the stitcheries.  I love how Lisa has put some of the motifs in the outside border, extending the design right to the outside of the quilt.

New York Beauty

I haven't disappeared, just been away and then sick and then I couldn't work out how to upload pics and then...... I know - excuses, excuses!
But, amazingly these pics are here waiting for me to post them.  So, this is a New York Beauty design by Chris Jurd and made by Belinda N. 

Belinda left the quilt with me, and said to do whatever took my fancy.  So, as usual I got a little carried away, and did some ruler work, then some freehand feathers, and then played on the statler with some curvy geometric designs.

I have made a version of this quilt and it looks nothing like this one.  Mine has chooks on it and is very bright.  This is a total opposite of mine and I love it!

Now that I'm back I have a whole stack of pics to show, so I need to get my act together!
