Stars and Strips

I had lots of leftover fabric from other patriotic quilts I had made as well as all these red and white half square triangles. So I started making stars and this is the quilt I ended up with.  I really liked how it turned out and knew I wanted it to go to someone I knew.  My dear friend Helen's husband is a retired Marine and I felt this quilt would be perfect for him and I was right, he was overwhelmed.

Purple People Eater

The purple scrappy quilt is on the Longarm!!!  I blogged about making the back a while ago.  It is the first time I have ever made the back before the front.  Liking this one.   Linking up to shecanquilt.com

And here is the back

What to do with all that fabric

I have been on a mission to use up my scraps.  Have made one blue and white, one red and white and One using left over juvenile fabrics.  Now I am on to my purple.  OK, let me explain.  I made a purple quilt for my granddaughter 8 years ago and I inherited a bunch of purple.  I got it all cut out and was STILL left with a pile.  What to do, what to do.  Ah Ha, a pieced back.  Used up every bit to that purple and I like it.
