Modern Dresden and other little projects

Here is my latest quilt top !
 
 It started with the centre block which was going to be a cushion.  The circle flowers, the bird and part of the leaves are made from wool.
Most of the quilt was machine pieced.
 I have been going over a box of orphan blocks and leftover bits and found some  wool applique pieces which fit with the entire design.
 To tie in the Dresden plates and cover the centres I also used wool.
 The idea was to just pick up lots of bright fabrics and high contrast and go for it !
 Nothing was planned, not even the background fabrics.
  My daughter was going to throw away these picture frames so I made these 2 mini blocks.
 And finally here is our baby Penny.  I got her for my daughter but she hangs out with me a lot of the time... sometimes slows me down with my sewing but how can we resist this little cute face ?
