    New finishes

    I finished both of these quilts this weekend. Since my husband has been watching all the college basketball games, I have had plenty of time in the evenings to sew! Our son and his girlfriend served as quilt holders for these pictures.

    Both quilts are lovely (and both sets of ankles, too). I think the way you did the corners of the star quilt is really cool - it looks like the corners are folding back into the star, "revealing" a second layer of fabric underneath. Very interesting effect - was this planned, or serendipitous?

    Beautiful quilts. Love the crispness of the white in the first one, so bright and scrappy with interesting fabrics. The red/white/blue star is very pretty also!
