Winter Star #1

Ta-da.... I've finished this and I've named it Winter Star. I've already decided I want to do another one with different fabrics and so I'm calling this is #1.
I quilted wavy lines thru the middle of each strip and a curly design in the red star. What a fun pattern this is and so quick. I must admit when I first looked at Twinkle, I couldn't see past the graphic colors. Now I'm thinking all kinds of color combinations. In fact, recently my DD told me she "needs" an new quilt - LOL!!! She wants aqua, white and red. I thought of Bliss - can't you just see it?? The background in aqua/white with red stars. How cute would that be??
I hope many of you are enjoying Kim's great patterns in Scrap-Basket Sensations.
Until next time,
-Karen

Very cute, Karen. Like you I couldn't see past the graphic design - my eyes are wide open now.

It would be fabulous in Bliss.

Looks like something that could be displayed in December with the red & green combination. In blue & white, it could have a snowman on it and be for January.

Too cute! The more I see this one, the more I want to do it again. My head is spinning with color combinations! When you mentioned aqua and red, I immediately thought of Bliss!
