Two Finishes :))

As usual lately, both are made from what I had on hand ... no shopping other than thread and  a brown minky backing for one.

The main blocks are Haystack blocks (6") from Lori Holt's "Farm Girl Vintage Book".  Quilting is a mix of straight lines with my walking foot and some free motion star shapes.

Most of the fabric in this baby quilt 

is from leftovers after this quilt made bout 3 years ago:

I planned on making a lap quilt from mainly strings of black, grey and white with one strip of colour in the centre of each block, but I got bored with it quickly. 

 Also I had some orphan paper pieced star blocks looking for a purpose so I put them all together.

Some fmq pebbles in the coloured strings, hand quilting in the other strips...

more hand quilting and fmq in the star.
It finished up at 32 x 32 and hangs outside of the sewing room.
