helen's quilt

Christmas Eve my daughter in law Helen said she would like me to make her a quilt; Christmas day i asked her what colours although I thought i already knew, i was right, shades of purple! luckily because these are also my favourites i had enough to take part in the quilttalk new years Eve mystery designed by Ann Smith of salamanca New York. I put the final stitches to the quilt on Tuesday and delivered it to my DIL yesterday in time for her birthday on the 29th; she was amazed that i had completed it so quickly and is pictured here with it; the handsome young man also in the picture is my youngest son Jay, her husband

amelia's quilt

this is the quilt that I have just finished for Amelia Elizabeth Ann Read, Clive's great neice born on 23rd December. It was a mystery quilt devised by Renee Belfour but I must admit that I peeped so didn't do it as a mystery.
