Needle Cases & My Cornish Quilt

I have been busy enjoying a visit from my lovely Brighton grandees but last week I managed to make these needle cases as gifts for friends. 
Now they've arrived with their new owners I can show them here.
All completely hand stitched using my favourite Liberty Tana Lawn fabrics.
One in mixed colours for my special friend Dolores.......but the background had to be the bright pink that she loves so much.
One to help raise funds for a very worthwhile charity drive for Zoe.....
and one for another lovely friend, Lee in Cornwall.
Be sure to take a look at the new blog of my quilting group
Lots of ideas and quality makes from group members.
We'll have a followers button installed very soon!
A couple of weeks ago, Lee kindly sent me a pack of charm squares as a surprise gift and this is the little quilt I made with them. I love making it and I love the results and the colour palette.
Huge thanks to you Lee, it's a little treasure.
Super patterns on the fabric.
The backing.

Such beautiful work!! Quilting has always intrigued me, and terrified me lol. I have enough trouble wrangling papercrafting supplies. I've seen Quilter Stashes lol.
