    2 WIP charity quilts

    I have had several WIPs that were on hold because I fell and injured my wrist a bit. I could not do ironing or quilting. Today, a friend did the ironing for me. These will be fore the rehab hospital that did such a wonderful job with DH after his recent stroke. I gave them one and we promised them 5 more.

    They are wonderful, so graphic. I love the stars, the setting in the first, and the unusual star in the second. Very very sharp

    Thank you.
    The center of the first is an exceptionally pretty cheater block from a garage sale (a guild sister is having to give up quilting and is selling off her stash Most of the fabrics in these 2 are from that garage sale.). Another of my WIPs uses the same cheater block. My LQS recently had fabrics with 2+" longitudinal stripes of patriotic designs. I took 2 of those stripes and subcut 45* diamonds to make that star. I had not done this before, but I surely will again.
