    Thanks ladies. Minis are my passion. I'd gotten away from them for awhile and now I am glad to be working on them again.

    Here is my Star Point Mugrug just finished it. It is 5" x 7"

    Do you see the 6 white stars or do you see the 2 dark stars in the center? Do you see the two interlocking circles behind the dark stars? I love illusions.

    Karen stand back and look at it from a bit of a distance and you will see the white as the background and the dark diamonds in the center become 2 stars (diff shape-diamonds- than the white stars)

    I love my Star Point blocks and my wing blocks because they give you the illusion of curves which in turn give you a chance to play with the look of curves and create these illusions.

    When I sold to a local store here the gal who bought from me preferred scrappy to planned colors. so I had 12 yrs of using mostly scrappy in my work. As it was an Amish tourist area she preferred me to keep it to the Amish colors. That is why it is on the dark side. but I like a lot of contrast in my work. The more contrast the more the design pops out. I am now trying to get more into the lighter brighter fabrics but I still like this look. I did brighten it some by using a lighter border. In the past I would have added a dk green instead of this lighter one.

    Isn't it funny how the brain works?? I love illusions. this is like one of those puzzles where you have to look across the surface of a paper where letters were written. If you get it right you see a word or picture

    I'm thinking about making a sampler quilt using blocks that form illusions. What do you think?

    Rhonda,

    I wanted to say thank you, and show you a mug rug I made from the 1.5 inch template you sent me.

    I really enjoy doing the smaller pieces. This was about 10.5 inches square.
    I have been lurking on this thread for a while, and enjoy the conversation. I wanted you to know that you have inspired me to go small as well as big.

    I think I ended up calling it HST Star, I put a photo up and asked people what it was called since I could not find the name. I thought it was the Ohio star. Thanks for the links.

    I love to see more people enjoying the mini world of quilting!! It is fun because you can do so many diff things in a shorter time than it takes to make a full size quilt.

    Anyone interested in another item swap? We haven't done one in awhile. I know fall can get really crazy so now is the time to fit a swap in!

    I need at least 4 people to swap.

    My mom bought some old mags at a yard sale and one of them was a woman's magazine that had this project in it. It was a 2003 mag. She asked me to make some tails for these pinball turkeys. I thought I might make each feather a diff fabric and see how they come out. I know there are alot of turkey patterns out there but this one looks like fun to me. I did make one tail last night but need to seam between the feathers yet. I made it bigger tho as the pattern looks too small for me. It is only one fabric which is what the pattern calls for. My mom picked out 7 diff fabrics for 7 tails so I will make those for her first and then play with some scrappy ideas for the tails.

    If you dont' have a bowling pin I am sure there are lots of turkey patterns you could substitute for the bowling pin.

    Dede, your mugrug is adorable! Sooo pretty!

    Rhonda, I know I've seen that turkey before. I've painted a wooden one with bright different colored tail feathers and it was super cute that way! I like your idea...will want pictures of course...
