Finished Quilt

I have finished this quilt and sent it to its new owner.
It has a dual purpose it can be used as an "I spy" quilt as there are so many different sea themes going on. Pleased with the border as it did tone down the blocks of light blue.

Another disappearing nine patch this time made with some sea fabric that I bought some time ago. It is for a very dear friend of mine. It will need a light blue border one of the colours is a bit bright.

This is what I have been play with lately.
It is a pattern from ... edwards_menagerie ... Kerry Lord has a wonderful creative talent.

She is multi coloured as I am experimenting a lot with colour.

Snakes and Ladders lap quilt

A Christmas present for my Grandchildren
Rainbow design
The snakes had buttons for eyes and I was running out of time so the ladders became rope ladders. I have wanted to make this for quite a few years. One to tick of the list. 
They thought it was great we played a few games and then they used it to snuggle under to watch the TV.
It has a red fleece backing, so good for snuggling under.
