Batik table runner

Another little project created as an excuse to use the batik charm squares I bought a while back, and for the purpose of practising some free motion quilting...

I used a multi-coloured thread on the top (had JUST enough of it to finish all the quilting thank goodness!), and an aqua on the base.

Spider-Man Pillow

I made this 18" pillow/cushion with leftovers from my nephew's quilt, using the front panel as a trial quilting sandwich to practice the spider web designs that I used on Bain's quilt, and the minky back panel as a practice run for the next quilt that I have got ready to finish (and it has a minky backing).

Spiderman Quilt for Bain!

Here is the single bed sized quilt I have made for my 5-year old, Spiderman mad nephew, Bain...
I think he likes it!!

I quilted sets of three lines around each block, with one block in each row and column having a spiderweb or Spiderman shooting out his web...

I cannot for the life of me get this photo to upload the right way round...sigh...
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts' Finish It Up Friday and Kelly's Needle and Thread Thursday! Also with Shannon's KISMIF!

'Birdies' - pillow

I can't think of a better name for it...I love the fat little stylised birdies on the front of the pillow, so am going with 'Birdies' as a name.

Made from two separate fat quarter sandwiches that I used to practice some free-motion quilting on for a couple of other projects, I inserted a zip and a 16" pillow insert.
