Here is my version of the Sarah Morrell quilt hanging on the wall in the family room - completed in 2012 using Di Ford's wonderful pattern:

There are also more photos of individual blocks here on a previous post.
Hanging in my entrance way is the Folk Art Basket quilt. It is my version of Karen Cunningham's reproduction pattern and was made in 2011/2012. It was just such a pleasure to make this one and got me well and truly hooked on English Paper piecing and fussy cutting techniques.

Folded away at the moment ( spot it on the shelf?) is my red and white Mariner's Compass - made in 2010 in classes with Chris Jurd. It is foundation paper pieced and appliqued, and machine quilted - see this post for a closer view. It was a real eye-opener to discover foundation paper piecing too.

The next one is folded on a bed - machine pieced and hand quilted in 2007. It is my design made in my daughter's choice of largely Japanese fabrics.

Hope you have all had a lovely Easter - loaded with chocolate and Easter buns like me!

I have put a link in the margin to my Pinterest collections in case you might like to look - but I think you may have to be a member ...
