New girl in Town

Hi my name is Julie and I live near Nottingham in the UK and I'm new to the blog, I've been quilting for a year now - nonstop!! Addictive isn't it?! I've been following the blog for a few months and loving what I see - these are my recent efforts using the 15 mins of play and incorporating labels that I've cut out of recycled clothing - can you spot them? I think I'm gonna aim to get them 12" squares so today after browsing through such inspirational sharings..I have downsized a bit and have put together some borders of teeny stuff plus a 5" square

These are pretty, Julie! Random sizes look great to me, why cut them?! I'm in Kidderminster...carry on upholding our side of the 'pond'!

I've got a tin full of labels from neck ties I've recycled that I mean to do something with someday. Thanks for a new idea!
