Toffee & White Gingham Baby Throw.

 Here is a little creation that has been keeping me away from card  making of late. 
I intended  to give it as a gift, but I am not 100% happy with it so it may end up as a throw on the sofa for those colder evenings.

I had a little trouble getting the camera to show it in it's true colour.  I think the closest it came was in this photo of the little boy tying his shoelaces.


Patchwork and Quilting are relatively new to me. 
I tried both for the first time two years ago .
I have never been into patchwork because I have never liked  the look of finished items.
But I so wanted to use these Red work designs and that meant patchwork.
I've been  watching video s on Youtube on patchwork and quilting and  I have to say the whole thing is growing on me. 

There are many very talented ladies out there making the most beautiful quilts and patchwork bed throw it astounds me. 

I especially love the quilts the ladies in the USA create. 
Their  workmanship and designs are stunning.

I still have a long way to go and lots to learn about quilting and patchwork.  So for now it's keep it simple  and keep watching  youtube for  techniques and ideas and keep practising.
