Special Quilt

I have been very slow on my Dear Jane lately. Not only have I been having some fun with the placemat swap, but also I have made a special quilt for my daughter, Prue, who is going off to her school's remote campus for 8 weeks next term. As it will be the depth of winter I have made it with cute flannel fabrics so it will be nice and cuddly..........!!
Here is the rugby jumper they wear that I used as inspiration for the colours and logo.

Placemat swap





I have just joined into a Placemat Swap and this has taken up a bit of time...........need a break in between Dear Jane blocks. Here are the two I have made to swap with my partner......
I had fun with the hand quilting.

A-13 Starlight-Starbright

I paper pieced this one to make sure I got the birds in the correct position. I like the way it has turned out. I now only have 2 to do to complete row A.

A-3 Hunter's Moon

Here is my next block............I seem to have a few distractions at the moment and the applique is not a good as I would have liked.
