The one that started it all!  This space quilt for my son James was the whole reason I started quilting!. It's displayed on the sewing room bed here, not his bed.  I also quilted the cushion cover to go with it.

The Electric Leftovers quilt: so named because it was one I made from bits left over from a charm square swap!  These charm squares wanted to stay at home and be a quilt, so they did!

I need to take a better picture of this now that it is both complete and in use!  It was made to complement some lovely Cracked Ice I was sent as a present.

Here are two quilts still in the making!  The blue one is one I'm making for my mum, who loves blue.  The other is the quilt that demanded to be made!  These are both based on the Houndstooth pattern in Fat Quarter Quilts by M'Lliss Rae Hawley.
