    Here's some pics of my work!

    A picture quilt made of squares and triangles then embellished with appliqué and some embroidery. Have written sunflower in english, dutch and french as my OH is dutch and we live in france - also latin to be botanically correct! Hand pieced and quilted.

    Thanks so much - although my Dad says the house is wonky and must be suffering from subsidence - men! Mind you, he also says 'what's the point in cutting fabric up in bits and sewing them back together?' Doohhh!

    I got some blue and white fabric on a trip to Holland and made this inspired by Delft plates.

    Thanks everyone - I AM pleased with my work - most of the time, it's just when I go to exhibitions, everything always looks nicer then mine, quilting stitches neater and smaller etc; i guess I just want to be perfect and can't! But all your kind comments are a real boost; thanks again!
