Two Finishes

OK, since this was a rather slow weekend I made an effort to finish two projects that were almost done.
A cute (in my opinion) top for my grson A. I thought I had made him two baby quilts before he moved to Texas but my DD informed me that nope only one. I love the Fat Quarter sets sold by Fabric Boutique and good thing it is in Calif. cause I would be so tempted to buy them all the time. Their patterns are perfect for the sets as you only needed to add some border fabrics and everything else can be made from the 8 coordinating fq's from the set.

This is a real TA-DA! for me. I am in love with the color combo and the Inklingo method of making my first Feathered Star. I have a second set of pieces cut and ready to piece for the future 4 block wall hanging. I am very happy to use this wonderful method to piece either by hand or machine.

That feathered star is gorgeous! If it were me I'd do the one block and frame it for the wall just how it is! So beautiful!

The feathered star turned out great and will make a wonderful wallhanging. You should be very proud of yourself. And, I love the quilt you made for your grandson. I am a sucker for striped or plaid borders.

Your feathered star block turned out beautifully!! I'm always so attracted to red but never seem to work with it!
