I thought I would show a few of the quilts that I have made in the last year... Here goes...

This first one is for my son Sam ( he is my little ray of sunshine who has some dark moments )- he certainly keeps me on my toes. The quilt is named ' A little Ray of sunshine in a black and white world ' I just made it up as I went along. I had plans for a totally different quilt at the start but love how it all turned out

Not to leave out Sam's twin sister Rachel, I chose  charm square packs and set about appliquing hearts and playing around and was pleased with the results. Rachel wanted just hearts on her quilt. This one is titled Love is in the Air

Number one son Nathan has a quilt too which I made first and chose red, black and white. I  made nine patch blocks and keept the centre square red. I then cut the block into four and then rotated the pieces to get the effect. I backed the quilt with fleece to make it extra snuggley.

My girlfriend's son loves Port Power footy club and I chose a quilt in teal, black and white for him for his bedroom makeover. I used striped fabrics and kept the centre stripe teal in all the blocks
My nephew received his quilt this year too which was the same design as number one son's but using green instead of red when making up the nine patch blocks
Then came my only neice who is penguin crazy...
The photo wasn't that good as I had sent my daughter to Melbourne with the quilt and realised I had not taken the photo so this is her attempt ( with the help of her cousin ) to get me a photo.

I hope you have enjoyed my little presentation

cheers for now
