Roses & Strawberries from Scotland

Annette, (VoodoVixen) sent in the very first quilt for the children and it was also the very first one she had ever made. Since then, and all within a month, she has made two more quilts for babies of friends and yet is in the process of packing up to move to Australia in just a week! All this is amazing but it was an utter surprise to receive yet another quilt for LillyBo!!! Annette's second gift, how does she do it!!
Annette has so enjoyed it that she will continue to make them once she is settled in OZ and hopes to set up a similar project over there under the banner of LillyBo Quilts! 
How wonderful that is and Thank You so much Annette for this riot of Strawberries and Roses all the way from Scotland. 
Good luck with your move and we look forward to hearing of all the quilts you make and donate "Down Under"!
Here's LillyBo Quilt No 14
Annette added ribbon tags all over  as she remembered how her own children loved to play with the satin ribbon tags and labels when they were little.
Who is peeping out of the bag pocket?
It's a cute little cuddly in the image of a cat.
Close up of the tags and labels.
Tilly's trains chugged in today so keep watching!


  1. well done Annette such a pretty quilt with all the ribbons, good luck with your move

  2. LOL... less said about that cat, the better... just let it be known that I do not have Annie and Jo's talents for making wee animals and teddies!!

  3. Oh dear, this made me fill up! How wonderful is Annette's quilt and to think she will be starting up a splinter group in Oz, not to mention getting ready to move and making quilts too. Annette, you are a real star! Your quilt is stunning. Hugs, Anne x

  4. This is truly gorgeous and a real labour of love with all those ribbons stitched in the seams. Well done Annette.
    Am I going mad? The last one was number 12 and this one is number 14? [don't answer the first question cos the answer is without a doubt....yes of course you are :-) ].

  5. Another beautiful quilt

    But Ms LillyBo was born on the 13th!!


    1. That day was very lucky and I'm not superstitious but there is not going to be a No13 quilt as I'm not risking anyone else being put off by the number on the quilt!

  6. Aaaw, that is very thoughtful Jo. I wouldn't have had a problem with it being a 13, I have lived in #13's, my Gran lived at #13... to me it's just a number but I can see where it might bother some folk especially if they had a precious child that was ill. We'll be like the elevators... no 13th floor!! ;)

  7. Aww, this one is so pretty.
    not that they all aren’t lovely, it’s just that this is just so ‘girlie’ with all the ribbons. And how cute is the little cat.
    Absolutely beautiful Annette!
    Happy Crafting!

  8. This is so pretty, wouldn't mind one like this myself.
