More Small Quilts




Here are two more small quilts for an upcoming auction.
I like to call them table mats!!!
I imagine them sitting in the middle of the table
with a nice pot of flowers on top.
But....
Maybe they'll be wrapping up a much loved doll.
As long as they're being used....I'm happy!

In the first one I used two lovely hand pieced orphan stars
PLUS
two stars that I made to match.
They didn't match exactly...
and that's the CHARM!

You just never know what will happen when you CREATE!

The outside triangles were leftovers from a mistake in construction.
They add the perfect TOUCH!!!
don't you think??

Mistakes are just the jumping off place for me!!!

The second small quilt contains the last FEW precious scraps
from a quilt I made a few years ago.
I LOVED the fabric that went into it.
Hope someone will love these blues as much as I DO!!!
