Lyn's 60th Birthday Scrap Quilt October 2016

There's no doubt about it, scrap quilts will always be my favourite kind of patchwork. There's always a challenge to bring all those disparate scraps together into a pleasing whole.
Each of the blocks has a strip of red in it and some black and white. In this scrap quilt I also used some unusual sashing, a piece of red and gold batik which was actually a sarong I had bought in Malaysia years ago. I think it absolutely made the quilt and added the wow factor.
 Here's the close-up of the label.......

I managed to get some better photos of Persephone's quilt. Sarah kindly took them for me with Madame Persephone in situ again. This time I have a photo of the label too!

Persephone's Quilt October 2016

This is not a good photo of the quilt unfortunately but it's a great one of that queen of cats, Persephone. Persephone needed her own personal quilt of course.
Although you cant see it well, Persephone's quilt has been done in a simple ninepatch using two different toning cat prints and a "paw" print. She clearly loves it.

Owl Baby Quilt September 2016

 This little quilt was made for charity. My niece Kerry runs a charity called Kelcey's Krusade in memory of her daughter. Hopefully this will raise a little money for brain cancer research.
Alternating blocks of framed owl prints were done in blues and yellows
The quilt scraps were joined together randomly and made into the binding. I do this a lot as it's my favourite kind of binding. An embroidered label completes this simple quilt.
