Charity quilt done

I finished the charity quilt I really wanted to make for a local children's cancer organization. I used the Yellow Brick Road pattern and used fabric I had on hand. The selvage on the border fabric read "1999" so I think it was definitely ready to be used!!

It's not anything complicated but will hopefully make a child happy. I am using a bright floral flannel for the backing.  Not sure if I'll undertake  the quilting myself on my Janome 6600. 

I also made two stars using this week's theme: Cretonne, which I interpret to use something like periwinkle, which I love. 

Liked it so much I made another in reverse and I actually like it better!

I also picked up a little kit in Madison to make a block for the quilts of valor project. I'm going to make more blocks next!

I'm definitely in the mood for charity these days!

    Your reverse value stars are really pretty, Randy.
