Do you recall this little quilt that I designed and made almost two years ago for my family reunion auction? I called this "Stars and Stripes Forever".
My brother won this one. It is the same size as the previous one, but the centers of the stars are different.
Shortly after making this second one I began making AAQI quilts. I wanted to make a patriotic one and still had little parts and pieces left from these two quilts. Size restrictions on AAQI quilts required that I make it smaller somehow. I chose to use only 4 of the blocks, put pinwheels in the centers of both stars, and orient the stripes all in the same direction. This ended up being 8 1/2" square.
I called this one "Liberty and Justice For All." It was sold at the AAQI booth at the Houston Quilt Festival, so I have no idea where it ended up. If you've seen it, let me know. : )
This is my latest mini creation.
Not very good lighting on this. I made it half the size of the quilt above, so I have named it "Stars and Stripes Forever .5". It is 4 1/2" square.
I don't believe I will go any smaller on this. : )
If you are tired of minis you may want to skip my next few posts. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Until next time,
