More of my sister Lindas patchwork pretties

Well I may not have been making much lately apart from my mosaic jewellery but my sis sure has been busy.
These are her latest creations, the quilt and cushion covers are works in progress.
She's used lovely shades of pinks and greens for these, our favourite colours of course, in lovely
roses, florals and checks.
The quilt is pussy cats and hearts, all of the applique has been lovingly hand stitched. She is going to add a contrasting green edging before putting the the wadding and backing on. It's a nice size lap rug, she's made it a bit bigger than it's supposed to be for a bit more cuddly comfort.
The cushion covers are lovely too, she's actually made four of them, 2 of the pinks and 2 of the greens. These are hand appliqued with pretty, delicate hand stitched embroidery flower garlands around the hearts.
These pictures are so sweet.
Both of them have similar hand stitched embroidery garlands in the shape of a heart on calico. They match the cushion covers very nicely and would be a lovely addition to any country cottage home.

If you're interested in purchasing any of these please email me, they will soon be for sale on my website 'shabbygirlmosaics'
