These don't live at my house

We've had a great family Christmas in New Zealand and it was a treat to be around small children. I hope you all enjoyed your day as much as we did.
This is the secret sewing I posted about a wee while ago. It's a bean bag foot stool for my SIL. The kids love it too!This coin purse I made for my eldest GD from a scrap of silk she was given a couple of years ago. The following quilts have not photographed too well for colour, sorry. This is one lap quilt I made in October for my DD's birthday. It's machine quilted and was a quickie done in 6 days. The pattern is from here.
This daisez quilt was made in 2002 from a Jan Mullen pattern, again machine quilted.
A cot quilt using a cheater panel called Hungry Animal Alphabet, Hand quilted.
Finally, a double sided king size quilt made for DD and SIl in 2006, commercially machine quilted. I was asked to make something cheerful but the quilt is brighter than shows in the photo.

Until next time, have a very happy New Year!

Your quilts are BEAUTIFUL. I love your banner also - another of your quilts to be sure. I like the little origami pouches. Would you have a tutorial for them or know where I could get one?
Love your stuff. Linda
