    These are a couple of recently finished quilts. The french braid is for my DD and the lap quilt was made in less than 2 weeks for my sister in law who just had heart surgery. I quilted them on my little Brother sewing machine.

    I love both of them. The rainbow pinwheels sashed in black on the braid are an extra special touch.

    Can you please elaborate on the pattern for your sister's quilt? I love this and it is such a perfect use for Asian prints. It looks like a nice quick easy pattern. I am sure I could figure it out by looking but if there is a pattern I would love to know. Thanks

    Thanks for your kind comments, I saw a pattern similar in a magazine but it was only wall hanging size so I adapted it and made it lap sized. The large floral squares were 8 1/2" as that was all the fabric I had and I just worked it out from there.
    PM me if you would like any other information or if you would like me to email it to you.

    I really really like the second quilt. The colors are so pretty and the pattern I also like very much. Good work. Also I always love seeing the bird on your avatar each time you post. I am a bird lover also and your bird is beautiful

    Great Quilts! I am really fond of the fabrics in your second quilt...such soft yet bold browns (that is my first thought, when I saw it). Your quilting looks wonderful.

    I also love the borders in the braid and the colours are stunning. The pattern for the second one is beautiful - the floral print squares seems to float. It reminds me of a d9p but with a black frame round the squares, I wonder if it could be made that way?

    Encouragement again from this board. I have been afraid to try to quilt anything larger than a baby quilt on my Singer. You did so well on your "little Brother" that I think I will try on my next quilt. THANKS!

    Both of your quilts are lovely! The french braid is so cheerful, with the rainbow colors and the pinwheel blocks are an inspired touch. Your sister's quilt is so smart and elegant looking, I love the strong contrast of the black and cream colors.

    Both are very pretty, but I love all the color in Alannah's quilt!
