The first one is the spinning star quilt I started last week. I decided to stick to 9 blocks and added a border to which I added a gentle wave edge. Sometimes I feel a plain border is a bit of a cop out, just a way to finish a quilt but perhaps a little uninspiring. I love how it turned out and it is just the perfect size for a lap quilt.
The second one is a quilt I made a while ago and it has been hanging up waiting to be quilted. It was made with a couple of layer cakes that had been hanging around my studio for a while.One evening I decided to stay in my studio into the evening as my husband was away and I got it finished. I added a deep scalloped edge and bound it with a green spot. Love it.
I try to get in a little bit of sewing for myself each day and it is amazing how much can be achieved by doing this. It feeds a creative need (and no doubt makes me a nicer person too!!!)
