Sisters But Not Twins

The quilts are closer to done, and so Lazy Sister Sue and I decided to finally share our tops with eachother.

It was a down to the wire project - both of us worked on our tops this weekend, LSS at a quilt retreat with friends, and me at my dining room table while the Munchkin played or napped, and hubby worked on some freelance web gigs.

LSS has not named her quilt yet -but I am calling it Black Starred Susan because all her star points are black. Mine I am calling Summer Sunshine, and you can see all the points on mine are yellow/orange. Great thanks to Bonnie at Quiltville.com for this great pattern and the idea of unifying the scrappiness of it with a consistent star point color.

Believe it or not none of our 9 patches match! With more than 50 colored fabrics alone - we both had a lot of possibilities. I won't even try to do the math.

Now to work on the borders and come back again with finished quilts. That will take a while longer - but for now this is where we are.

And now to plan our next joint project... hmmm... any recommendations?

Hi Regina,

Both quilts are wonderful! I love seeing the quilts side by side. It's a lovely design and I can't wait to see the borders.

Congrats to you both on such lovely quilts!
