Gemma's Quilt

Gemma has never asked for a quilt before but now that she has moved out I expect things are a little different. I made this between Xmas and new year and I'm pleased to say she likes it.

Gemma's Quilt

This is Gemma and my favourite saying so that had to be included.

Gemma's Quilt

And it had to have a label.

and just so you don't think I have been spending tooooooo much time playing with Clarice.
I made this for a friend before Xmas.

Tilda Chicken

well that's her dainty feet.

She is a Tilda pattern.
