Finished Mini

Here is the Lone Star mini I just finished. Hand-pieced, hand-quilted, hand-bound. I'm using it as a table-topper for now.

It's very pretty, Rita. I am so in awe of all the hand work. And I think your choice of colors and fabrics was great. It looks cold and sparkly to me - like a Christmas star. I love it. Lois

Thanks, all. It's 21 inches square. I read somewhere online that a mini is considered a mini up to 24 inches, so it's "legal".
I dragged out the "Evil One" today. I'm working on getting all the rows done, then the hard part is sewing the rows together - it's hard to explain unless you see it. I've never done one where you have the rows running diagonal with the triangles on the sides and that's why I shoved it aside way back in disgust. Lining up those rows is so hard with the diagonal lines for me, my brain doesn't want to deal with it.

Really pretty. I like the batik/new with pattern/old joined for a whole new mini look.
