Krommama's Quilt!

Remember back here when I blogged that I had finished two maverick star dolls quilts? One for me and one for Sarah, Krommama on flickr not to be confused with Sarah who I am doing the swap with that I mentioned in the last post.... If you click on the link it goes to a great shot of her table with all her placemats on it and some yummy pizza! Anyway, now it has safely arrived on her table, I can blog it.

I was pleased with the back. I had enough sides left over to make up a square block big enough to put the label on in the square. Didn't think to take a photo when I had finished though....

Some detail of the quilting. I am loving that Jump Rope Katie fabric at the moment, I seem to be including it in every quilt sewn.

And here it is with its "twin". Mine is hanging above the ironing board at the moment, really need to move it to the wall.

Both quilts are so cute! You are so good about making a twin to keep. I wish I would have done that every time I swapped.

OH, amazing quilting! I love that way you went around the stars and then meandering in between on the white with variegated thread! I have a wonky stars/log cabins top that is almost done and now I can't wait to steal this idea and get it finished! Very, very pretty colors, too.

I love those maverick stars, might have to add it to the dream list eventually!
