Maverick Star Dolls Quilt Finished!

I finished this beauty on Friday. Well, I think it is a beauty! LOL Some time last year Sarah, of wonky houses flickr fame and I threw around the idea of having a little private swap, as you do. Then life and Christmas and stuff just got in the way and we both agreed "one day". Fastfoward to last month when the chat about flickr DQS#6 was happening and she was getting impatient to start, we agreed to squeeze our little swap in before the flickr one.

And having been caught up in the joy of making maverick stars for the Bushfire Quilts project, I went small stars! And all scraps except for the borders and binding.



As always I made two, one for me, one for the swapee! I made my one first so the second one for Sarah is much neater, more well made. Oh, such bad English Helen, more well executed in it's construction? It's better! Here's a sneek peek Sarah. I can't resist blogging it!

Love it! I love how the binding looks like a 3rd border - heck I like the 2 borders & I love the striped binding. Love the quilting - color on white!
