Rocket Quilt

I bought the fabric for this quilt online and I thought the yellow was darker than it turned out to be. It just goes to show you should always send for a swatch first.[why do I never listen to my own advice?] Well it's not the end of the world and I'm pleased with the result. I've decided to use a lovely deep mauve thread on top to tone down the brightness of the yellow.

Quilt me a pink pirate!

Another  granddaughter another quilt. This one just loooooves pink, and she loves making up stories and adventures, she also likes to be different from everyone else [she is definitely her own person]So when I saw pink fabric with  not only girl pirates on it but mermaids ,ships, seahorses and treasure maps how could I resist!
