I started the Clipper quilt (Anisa's high school is the Sturgeon Bay Clippers) when we were going to the football games and needed to stay warm. Well, football season is over, but we have a warm toasty quilt to keep us warm (since we don't have ENOUGH in the house already!). The red/white blocks are split nine-patches and were very fun to make since they went together pretty quickly. The Clippers on the bottom are just pieced ships that I found in one of my books.
This little star quilt came from a pattern I found in one of my boxes. I cut it out of a magazine ages ago and found it again, and thought, "Wow, that's cute. I should make that". So, I did. The Tiny star blocks are 1.5" finished and the little red/yellow 4 patches between the stars are only 1/4". Lucky for me, the pattern shows you to make them bigger, then cut them down so you're not working with a bunch of tinsey little pieces. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It won't be keeping anyone warm, except the dust bunnies it's covering on the table. :)
