Send in the Clowns

My mum and dad drove down yesterday afternoon from Brisbane. They are coming to Grandparent's Day and the Bookweek Parade at the school today. 

I think that I have mentioned before that my mum is a prolific quilter. These are her latest 2 quilts. The first is a very bright children's quilt that has been professionally quilted.

The backing fabric has little paw prints all over it.

The second is a baby girl quilt made from a scrap bag. The fabric features tiny sweet birds in pale pink and green. It is quilted in the ditch.

The backing fabric was from my destash for Linus projects.
My mum does NOT blog so I am posting these on her behalf.
