    Hello, I was on holiday from work last week so I put it to good use making a couple of quilt tops.

    Oh, those are wonderful Katherine! When I looked at the first one, I actually saw yellow flowers thru' the "windows"! :D I think I must make one of those disappearing 9-patches now too. Holy cow, the list just grows & grows! :wink:

    Thank you for your kind comments, they are only lap size quilts,the star one being for quite a large lap, the other will have a couple of borders to make it the same size, both are for birthday gifts. One friend has a narrowboat at the same marina we are in, the boat is dark blue with gold trim so she has everything to match that colour scheme on board so that gave me the colours for the quilt, her birthday is in June so will have time to finish it, then the next birthday is July.

    Both are very pretty, I really like the second one. So colorful, and yet your stars are very pretty. You do good work.

    You do nice work and so speedy too. The colors in the 1st quilt are so bright and cheery.

    I really like the scrappy look of your disappearing 9-patch. I'm working on one right now right now and it is fun and easy.
