A Mini Star Quilt

I've always loved the quick gratification of finishing a small project.  Especially a quilted one.  This little star was no different.  I made this about a month ago and I have posted about it before.

But this post is for this mini only.  I so was hoping to make a new mini for Amylouwho's Sew and Tell Mini Quilt party but it is almost the end of this Friday and I did not do it.

I'm going to post this and then get busy!  With any luck I'll have another mini in ...a few hours, maybe?  Think I can do it?!  I'm going to give it a go!  So, here is the star mini that I made.  I love the colors and the design/pattern.  It is a pattern from Anyone Can Quilt.

Hand quilting detail.
It was so easy to follow and I have in mind to make a big quilt using this star (and maybe a few others) in the new year.  I think it would be nice in mini as well.  This mini measures 16.5"x16.5" and is a nice addition to the blank wall above my desk.  Someday there will be more than one...maybe even later today!  Head over to Amylouwho's to see many beautiful {mini} quilts.  They are very inspiring!

Have a good night!

love, Lisa

Your star looks great! I think it would look really good on a larger quilt with 2-3 other star variations :)
