Hello, here is the finished quilt for my son - it looks great!

I have also been busy finishing some felt pieces started before Christmas. I have made these into book covers.

I will have to think what my next project will be now - Any ideas ?

Picture it - on a Quilt!

"I'm cold, Mum" has been a familiar cry from my 12 year old son, so I decided to make him a quilt. I had a go last winter and make one for my daughter, so decided to do the same again.
But what do you do for a 12 year old?

 I decide to heat transfer photos of him over the last 12 years on to calico and use lots of blues (although you may see a green and yellow NCFC football emblem sneaked in!) to make it.

I am really pleased with the results - a photo to follow of  it finished in due course. So now both my children will have a lasting memory of their childhood.
