A finish!

Here are several photos of the lap quilt I have finished for a veteran at a retirement center. 
2 basic blocks: friendship stars which are all scrappy, and the split rail fence done in red, white and blue.  Each block iw 6 inches with a total size of 36 inches. 
The back is an awesome star print. 

The quilting is just a large stipple.

But it is done!  

Secondly, I have a banner for my mother in law who turns 100 years old this month.  We are gaving a family get together at her assisted living place.  She is amazing and sharp as a tack still following her alma mater, University of Wisconsin Badgers as well as many other sports and teams. She loves to read, still.  But arthritis has taken a toll on her physically. 

So here it is, yet to be quilted and bound. But nice and bright and hopefully to hang on her door.

Lastly the optional block for Blockheads week 34 by Lisa Bongean. It went together well.  I really like using the Best Press. prior to cutting it out.  It makes it come together precisely as long as the seam allowance is good.  This time I am using a new pumpkin color with a dark purple print of Kansas Troubles. ( hard to tell)
