    Spotted these pics online today - doesn't it look terrific?

    Called an Afghan Quilt .... I just love the blue 'contrast' to the white 'patches' .... not that I can 'do them'! :(

    My grandson on the giraffe quilt I made for him. Not sure if his parents realise it’s for his cot not the floor.

    That is STUNNING @Jwrenn!!!  I love it!!   Well done.  Is it your design as well?  Now he needs a Giraffe toy too!  ;) 

    I found these 'quilt biscuits' recently & thought it was cute .... I am not sure if they've been put on top of a cake or just separate bickies .....

    Thanks @arpie not my design, I bought a pattern and fabric kit a few years ago in anticipation. I have made a giraffe but it might stay with us for when they visit, but they live in Brisbane & we’re in Melbourne. 
    My daughter made patchwork cake for my birthday a few year ago too.
     Very cute biscuits.

    I notice a yellow theme on all the pics!!  ;)   LOVELY cake xx

    That might be wise to keep the giraffe for 'home visits' xx

    @arpie definitely a yellow theme with the giraffe quilt, I hoped my daughter-in-law would like it as I think it’s her favourite colour as are giraffes.

    Wow, so talented!
    does anyone ever post their paintings or drawings here or is there another site?
    I find drawing calms my mind, kind of like meditating.  :)

    Look forward to seeing your work, @Cindi!

    I did my first attempt at painting last weekend at a friend's 60th 'Sip & Paint' tutorial ..... the art teacher had sketched the whales onto the board, for the correct perspective ..... but all the rest is me!  ;)   hehe I am no threat to anyone who calls themselves an artist!  ;)   It was fun!
