I promised

I told you that I was going to work on this:

Stars on Black

Remember that it was only 7 1/2 inches and needed to be at least 9 inches square?  Well, it took me awhile, but here it is, now 15 inches square, waiting for a new owner someday:

Stars and Stripes

Then, I want to show you the mini I sent to my partner, Pam (uberstitch) for the QT Mini swap.  The theme this time was "true minis".  (I'm sure getting a lot of practice lately on all this true mini quilting stuff, let me tell you!!)  In reality I could have used this 9 x 11 inch quilt for all three swaps that I'm in.  Wouldn't that have been a hoot?

Mini Rainbow

Don't tell anyone, but I think I'm going to make another one like this maybe for me.  I really like it!  OR....maybe for my DQS swap partner if she likes rainbows?  Who knows?  It's just "so" me and I had such fun matching those tiny seams.  Each little block is only 3/4 inch by 1 inch.  Eikes!

Oooh they are wonderful! Hmmm too bad I've already had you as my partner as that probably leaves me out of the running for these... Xx

I love them both, Carol but the black is my most favorite! You've inspired me to get busy & finish up my pointed star from a class on paper piecing I took. Its only been waiting for about 9 years. LOL

Cool borders on both!!!

Happy 4th, my friend!
fondly,
Rett

Jen said...

Wow, adding that border on the star quilt really made it pop! It looks fabulous! I love the other one too, the B&W really sets off the colors and makes it look sophisticated and fun!
