    "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.

    It's amazing how the same fabrics can look so different. That first pattern is so unusual. Beautiful work!

    They are both very pretty quilts. It must have felt really good to get two quilts out of such pretty fabric.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    Both are beautiful, love the pattern of the 1st one, and the flanges add a very nice touch.

    The block pattern is from the book Paper Pieced Stained Glass Garden Stars by Liz Schwartz and Stephen Seifert. The block is called Freesia Star. Each quarter of a block consists of 15 pieces, so each star contains 60 pieces.
