Various quilting related things

I don't know what is wrong with me in that I just keep adding things to my to do list. I decided to play along with the Block Party quilt along. These six blocks are for the first tutorial the friendship star block. I am using some fat quarters of Nicey Jane and some solids that I had in my stash, we'll see how far it gets me :)

And I finally got around to taking pictures of all of the quilts I made for my girls for Christmas. All made out of vintage linens in their favorite colors, that I have been collecting the past few years. This one is Kinsley's she loves blue and purple.

Jade loves pink and orange.


Sage loves green and pink.
I am so pleased with how they turned out, I love a simple patchwork quilt and I love vintage linens. Putting the two together, I heart these quilts alot!
