Pinwheel baby quilt

A quilt for a new baby in a pinwheel design. I've used Liberty fabrics from a sample pack and Moda 'Bella' solids for the off white. It all came together quite quickly, but needed concentration to get the wheel the right way around - so a bit of dreaded unpicking. 

Hand finished bias binding and quilting.

Welsh tapestry

Well I've been sorting through my parent's house and came across a lovely collection of Welsh tapestry, skirts, suits, coats and bits of fabric.

Dad loved Welsh history and craft, so I put some of the remnants to good use

This tapestry is a Caernafon design and is reversible. 

Using my heart die on my Sizzix to make these lavender filled hearts. Finished with a black velvet ribbon and a vintage mother of pearl button.
