A couple more WIPs

The first of several star blocks using Maywood fabric's Folk Art Fancies as centers. The pattern is from a Fons and Porter magazine.

Here are a few more star blocks, stitched and unstitched.

9 patch bed quilt

9 patch blocks laid out alternating with plain blocks

The plain blocks seemed a little, well, plain. So, I decided to use a few other fabrics. It seemed to add some depth.

Here are the blocks sewn together

More of the blocks sewn together. Now I need to figure out a quilting design. It will be machine quilted....the only way there's any hope of finishing it in my lifetime.

X Stitch

One of my favorite counted x stitch pieces, completed several years ago.
