    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!

    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!

    You've done some beautiful work! Just for reference, you won't ever find criticism on this board unless you specifically ask for it! Lots of encouragement and help, if that's what you need! Looks to me like you could teach us a thing or two!

    Thank you all for your kind support. I've been on other (non-quilting) forums in the past and people have got quite agressive and personal from time to time which I guess is what made me wary. Not you people though, you're all lovely...but then you're quilters... :D

    Most of my designs are based on other things I've seen in books or magazines and adapted or 'tweaked' to suit me! i rarely copy anything exactly - I'm the same with recipes, always think it'll be better with a pinch of this or that! But I can't say they're original, no.
