    Wallhangings for my daughters

    I've been getting lots of inspiration from looking at all the wonderful pictures posted on this site so finally decided to post a couple of my finished projects. These wallhangings are a lonestar and carpenter star I made for my 2 daughters. The picture of the carpenter star is before I did the quilting & binding; don't have a finished pic. I have to say I enjoyed making the carpenter star more and thought it was easier.

    Both are beautiful, but the carpenter's star really stands out.
