Kiddies Kot Kwilts

I have just completed a couple of cot sized quilts for my sean-the-prawn label. Just simple squares of vintage recycled fabrics that I have decorated with various coloured topstitching in embroidery thread. I then quilted around each square. Margie @ MoochInside has been kind enough to display them in her gorgeous shop ....I hope they sell!!

wall hanging...not sure about it

I recently dusted off my old screen printing/textile design talents....I'll let you be the judge of the results. I designed this little trippy panda print, inspired by wall paper from my 1970's childhood bedroom. The print is in red on a stoney coloured background, and I have backed it and created a border around it with a fab old vintage fabric. Then I just couldn't help myself from sewing lots of my Granny's old buttons all over it. What do you think?? I think it looks cute in my daughter's room but would any one want to buy it?? Are wall hangings cool or not?
