    I thought you may like to see some of what I've been working on lately!The peach and cream one is for my eldest daughter and the Lilac one is for my middle son and dil.... (Theres still a bit of finishing off needed here)
    I have another 2 almost finished for my other daughter and eldest son but the youngest son has asked me to wait till after Christmas to do his as they will be re-decorating the bedroom and havent yet decided on the colour! (they all picked their own colours)

    Hi Karen:
    I just finished making a quilt top with the very same pattern you used...It's a Quilter's Cache pattern called "Annie's Choice?" I made mine using all scraps. I'll post a picture of it as soon as I get the binding on it.

    I love how you put the solid blocks between your star blocks. I hadn't thought of doing that. I love your quilts. My mom would love the coral colored one. Great job and thanks for sharing.

    Thankyou Feathers!....yes I'm sure that it was called Annies choice and it would have certainly used a quilters cache pattern...I love that site for my blocks!
    I started putting the solid block in to save time as I had 4 to do by Christmas (dont think I'd have managed it any other way) It saved an awful lot of work!
    I'll look forward to seeing your scrappy one!

    Karen
