Past Projects - Quilts

My First quilt that I made, this was Mum's mother's day present

This was the second quilt, made for my eldest son, the pattern was from a homespun magazine, but the middle was of a ship, I ended up doing my first go at applique here as well as I did an applique of my son's guitar

My cousin had a baby girl!!! and because I am so surround by boys I just had to do something very pink and purple and girly to celebrate!

A dear friend of mine had a baby boy and I found this pattern somewhere, still have it and thought I would give this one a go!

Finally my youngest son had his quilt made for him, This is a pattern from Hatched and Patched by Annie Downs and I loved doing it.
It is made up of a lot of stitchery panels which were so fun to do and he loves them!

He loves that his name is on his quilt

And both my son and 'The Boss' Sir Thomas made themselves comfy

Although this is the latest place the quilt has been seen, we have moved and  in the new house we have a Mulberry tree, Mr 5 couldnt wait for the mulberries to grow (although the quilt will not be going near the tree once it is in fruit!!)

And the UFO! this one I am determined to finish and very soon as I still love it! Bad photo though with the light behind but you get the idea, in shades of purple
