Default "Cousin" Quilts

I made this first quilt as a paper pieced stain glass fresia star. I love the secondary pattern that has developed. I had a lot of left over fabric, so I made a quilt using the leftovers. Since the 2 quilts have so many fabrics alike, I am refering to them as cousins. In the second quilt I used a 6 1/2 inch 10 minute block. I have 2 flanges and put my most narrow border on the outside edge which is reverse of what I would usually do. I hope you like them.
