It's in the Stars!

A few years ago, I made a quilt that I really loved. It was the one and only one I ever could hand quilt, as it was just to much back pain for me to endure. So, it was special, in many ways. It was called a Texas Star {or it's also called a Blazing Star.} I did it in red, white and blue prints with yellow centers. It turned out to be very striking.
 However it was lost sometime ago my unfortunate circumstances . I have made several quilts sense then, but in the back of my mind, was that Texas Star quilt.
  I never thought I'd ever get to make another one, but I have, and so... you can see stars.

Red white and blue ones, with yellow centers. These are different print fabrics, of course, and I used more colored plain squares then I did in the other one, but I love these Jubilee Garden fabrics. As soon as I saw them I knew they were the ones for my Texas Star quilt.

A Secret Keeper

Just one of those things one plays with for fun. She has been stuck in a box for a few years. I thought it was time to finish her off, and then let her go and wander around the yard looking for her own little place to hide away. lol.
At least she won't ever tell my secrets. lol.
