    Smile Two tops I am presently working on

    Made the Josie's Star a couple of months ago. Still need to finish it. The other one I started last week. Still need to add borders and quilt. I haven't really quilted one on my own yet. Scares me but am going to try.

    Your quilts are really pretty. Don't be afraid, just jump in and away you go. I just sewed 2 pieces of backing together and took an hour to cut all the threads out. Sewed it wrong side out! ugh.

    The star is so pretty, great use of colors. I love the pumpkin! Was that a panel? He's the cutest thing! Great job!

    I love them both! The star is so bright and vibrant. And the pumpkin is just my style. If it took you so long to find it on e-bay, I guess I don't stand a chance in being able to find it. Darn.

    Do a pratice throw away piece first. The two you have finished are small enough you should be able to FMQ with out too much difficulty...if you use a matching thread when ever possible your quilting will blend in and the tiny mistakes will not be as noticable......GO for it....the tops will do no one any good on a closet shelf

    Both are great, but LOVE the pumpkin quilt, especially the feet! lol
    Is there a pattern for the pumpkin quilt or is this your own creation?
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Both are good, but I love the colors in your star. It just glows!
