another quilt

I finished this quilt on Sunday night. It is a lap size quilt I gave away as a special birthday present. The picture doesn't show the quilt colors as well as I like, but I guess lighting and the camera can make a big difference. The pattern for the star block I got from my sister's blog and can be found here. I like how putting blocks together without sashing makes another pattern. It makes me want to try doing that again (maybe with a different block pattern).

Clair! The quilt is stunning!!! I like the secondary pattern that the blocks form as well. What a fun visual surprise.

I bet the quilt will be much appreciated. You did a nice job and in an impressively short time. Good for you! And for M, as well. :)

That is so beautiful,Clair! Purple. I like how you have used so many different color schemes with each quilt you make. I just got fabric to make Sarah a turquoise and brown rag quilt. I am so excited. I am at her house now and have been sleeping under the one you made her.
