Don't judge a book by its cover

A few posts back, I talked about a couple of try-out Little Gem quilts I had a stab at. They were real first-attempts and I had visions of ladies demanding their money back if they won them in the Festival of Quilts tombola, so I've kept them for home consumption. The blue and calico one I turned into a notebook cover - coo, that's posh! I stamped a line or two from one of my favourite poems on the inside flaps, just to leave a big hint that the quilt had a sea/tidal thing goin' on.

Today I'm going to audition some more fabrics and have another go at a quilt to send in for the tombola. I want to try and incorporate one or more of the photos I took of some daisies in the garden yesterday. I hope I'm not trying to run before I can walk - watch this space!

The book cover is fab, Chrissie and I love the quote. Also, adore your daisy photos - had a sneaky peaky at your flickr site yesterday. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I love the inclusion of text. I am putting text on everything at the moment, until someone tellsme to stop!

Ooo this is lovely! I love the wavy lines!

I'm trying my hand at quilting for the first time at the moment - slow progress for me!
