Yesterday I started cutting them with my 60 degree ruler. This is what I ended up with. How fun is that!!!
I used fabrics for the border I have had for a very long time.It is some of my favorite and I forgot all about it in a cupboard. I love fabric with stars and most every quilt I have done has star

The first she requested "just leaves and vines". The second, the pink floral, she wanted something geometric, so I gave her Square flowers.

I am trying to sew them together so that one square has the strips vertically
