twin quilts..


I am making two quilts at the same time. Using leftover triangles (bonus triangles) from the Shooting Stars pattern underneath to make blocks for the pattern above. Both quilts are inspired by talented quilters: Bonnie K Hunter's quilt and Kathie's quilt. I am heading towards 20 blocks for the above quilt (12 is currently made).
The fabrics are mostly reproductions, soft and warm colors, perfect for a cold winters day...



Have a nice weekend ...

Quilts made from leftovers are always wonderful.

Oh, how I LOOVE your Ts. It will be a most wonderful quilt! Will you quilt it by hand or machine? The sashing fabric is lovely. Brings out the colors of the repros. Just deliciously lovely:)!! So nice to use up scraps also. I am looking forward to see the progress! The stars are delightful! U

I like how the blues have snuck into the mix! Very soothing, a good comfort quilt!

What wonderful quilts! I love the scrappiness of them, and that you're using the leftovers of one to make the other. Don't you feel thrifty? Beautiful fabrics, as well! Those T blocks are so charming.

I think both of your quilts in progress are lovely! I like to use leftovers too - I like to think it would make my Grandma proud :0)
