birthday stars

This quilt has been done for a few weeks. I had to keep it "secret" since it was a gift for a special 4 year old girl in South Carolina. She opened her quilt yesterday and now I can share it !
I have been wanting to do the wonky star thing again. I NEEDED to keep it small this time. So instead I made the stars different sizes and in random spots. The back of the quilt is from a sheet set that I picked up on clearance awhile back. I tried to match the star colors to the polka dot colors.
Once again I forgot to measure the finished quilt. It was around toddler size. Now it lives with my niece !

blue, blue, blue !

It's another oldie but goodie. This quilt top is another from the blizzard of 2010. It's been waiting in my closet for months and months. Patiently waiting.
It's finally done. I kept the quilting pretty simple, more straight lines.
I have more of these blocks made up, so I can see another one of these quilts in my future. I always say I have a hard time with boys colors, but I love this.
The back was a happy surprise. The fabric is a mixture of blue colors to mimic the front, and to spice it up a little I added the strip on the side with fabrics from the front.
It ended up being around 42 inches by 42 inches. It is available to purchase and Kegan has already asked if he can buy it. "With what money ?" I asked him.
