Shirley Lerly's Gift Quilts

Aren't they just wonderful?!
All three of these gorgeous lap-size quilts have been made for sweet little girls as gifts from Auntie Shirley Lerly, who is "Chuffed to bits" with how they have turned out. Each quilt is exactly the same yet they look completely different... only because of the colours. All of the HST's (Half Square Triangles) have the same large print patterned fabrics (Westminster) partnered with their different colours which lead to the border choices...
ooooh heck.. it's hard to describe...you know what I am trying to say? Fabrics look different with different partner colours, bits pop out according to the colour they sit with.
The back of each quilt is quite lovely too, proper 'girly and cute'! They are sure to be loved and snuggled up to lots by those lucky little girls.

Glad to hear that you have tidied up your workroom. Ironing (ugh!) is something that I too put off until no one has a shirt to wear.
The girly quilts are cute - like you I like the little ones - less taxing. I have several in progress as Xmas prezzies and am dying to post them but trying to keep the secret - anyway may not finish them in time.
