Latest project

I just finished quilting this on to the binding. Perfect something to do this rainy afternoon.
My starting point was Peppermint Stars Quilt ( pattern from Free Spirit fabrics, but in their direction each block had a busy background and star points were striped pieced too.  It had way too much going on for my taste, so I changed it a little. I decided to make up the sashing also.

 When you getting through looking at all the quilts and shopping for fabric, patterns and "quilty''
 items....check out the State Fair grounds flea market. We did, then my friends and I went for lunch at Sweet Tomatoes. Yum! Yum!
