A Bright + Colourful Wall-hanging

Now this is kinda cheating, since I didn't actually make this wall-hanging. But it's so awesome that I just had to share it with y'all. 
A friend made it as a birthday present for my Mum last (?) year, and after months of faithful stitching, finished it just a few days ago. Since then, it has been hanging proudly by our front door for all our visitors to admire upon entering the house. :)
(The wall-hanging was made to match our house which is very colourful-- there are no white walls.)

Pretty cute, hey?

What are your favourite colours?

Gabriel's Quilt

It has been a looong time since I last posted. Not because of a shortage of sewing, but because of a shortage of, well... time for blogging. Over the past month our family has had sickness to the full extent with about 5 trips to the hospital, 2 of my sisters admitted to hospital, coughs, colds, croup, bronchiolitis.... etc etc. 
Ahh, winter! I do so love winter, but not exactly the sickness that comes with it. :P

 This is Gabriel's quilt; made from 100% cotton Hooty-Hoot fabric for an adorable 12 week old dude called Gabriel. Love that name. :)
Must apologise for the quality of the photos; evidently they were rushed and the colour itself is quite horrific. One day, I hope, my photos will actually look normal *sniff*.
The quilt itself was a rather simple pattern, square-in-a-square, with a patchy sort of border. 
I had to use my imagination for the backing because the piece I had set apart wasn't big enough.

What do you think??
