question and a present

would you put these stars together without sashing? i think i'm going to but i'm unsure since the fabrics that connect are not the same. just looking for some feed back if you want to give it.
and my sweet youngest made me a pencil holder for valentines. with hot pink and orange! i LOVE the color combo and his imagination!! also i got the idea from twin fibers for my flannel quilt. i said pattern but i don't know if they came up with it but i got it from them. sorry about the confusion.:)

all flannel

i am so glad that i tried a flannel quilt. it was WAY easier than i thought it would be. i stippled this quilt and i don't have any puckers. i'm not saying that to pat myself on the back as much as i'm surprised. i thought for SURE that it would be stretching and pulling and bunching. not so! i am so pleasantly surprised i would use flannel again. :) it is warm and snuggly.

the front, back and binding are all flannel. the back is what i had - and then some. i used some of my scraps to fill in a little section that needed filled in.

i just LOVE all these polka dots!! so fun!! this quilt is from twin fibers. their style is fun! we are starting to warm up this week so that's nice. hope it's nice by you! have a great day!!!

janes gift

we are having a surprise party for my friend jane tonight an i finished her quilt last night. :) i really do LOVE this quilt and think i might make a king size one for summer!!
i got the backing at joanns and i loved it.

the binding was also from joanns and i loved it as well. they have a section that's not with all the calicos - it's almost like quilt shop stuff. this is were i tend to look now when i'm there.

see the sweet little stars? i LOVE them!! i might have to go get more of this.:) hope you have a great weekend. we are going to have a few warm day (up to 30) and then we go back into the deep freeze. :) it's pathetic when it hits 30 and you think that's warm :)
