Animals & Butterflies from Twiglet (35 & 36)

Quilt No 36
Here's another gem from Jo Twiglet who (like most of you) still manages to stitch and create, and think of others, whilst leading such a busy life. 
This week there will be a wedding in the family as Jo's daughter gets married on Saturday. Hope it's a wonderful day and Best Wishes, Good Luck and Happiness to the Bride and Groom.

This fabulous quilt will be ideal to capture the interest of a younger child, and comfort them too, with all the little animals in the fabric squares and Jo has appliqued some of her own creations really effectively around the centre panel.
Here's the handy tote bag with a soft little kitty popping out of the pocket
Some details of the cute appliqued motifs
Love this one, it's like a brother of Bagpuss! Great expression!
Quilt No 35
 is a flurry of dragonflies and butterflies in bright primary colours
This matching butterfly, made out of the same fabric pops in the pocket as a little keepsake.
Thanks so much Jo for two lovely donations and thanks to you and all the Super Star Stitchers for your quilt creations. Heading for 40 and still a couple more in hand from Tilly and Alison CB to post, and they'll all be given over to 
for distribution at the unit this week.
