giant star quilt

Finished this quilt based on Jeni's tutorial over at in color order.  I was also inspired by Katy's velveteen version over at  imagingermonkey.
Mostly Anna Maria Horner fat quarters that I had in my stash.  I added the small bits that were trimmed from the fat quarters to the border.  I really like how it added to the frame of the star

Back is a stripe by Denyse Schmidt.  Really like this stripe and it is on sale at  a number of on line shops.

I just love the citron crosshatch sketch.  This will be mailed off to my former graduate school advisor tomorrow.  He recently moved and I thought it would be a nice house warming gift to let him know he is in my thoughts.
Quilt stats:
Finished size:  ~68x68
Quilted:  by me in a hanging basket design.

Valentine bot

I made this bot from a free pattern over at ric-rac.  I left in at my husbands breakfast spot on valentines morning and he did not even notice it (big sigh).  The note in the pocket says be my valentine.  He said he would and claims to love the bot.
