Friday Fun

I've spent the last couple nights working on this cute little wall hanging and am excited to see it all finished!  It's a going-away gift for a co-worker who is moving to a new job - I hope she likes it.  

HSTs in progress while watching the Santa Clause
It was fun to choose the fabrics and make the quilt- the block is the Ribbon Star from my Quick & Easy Block Tool.  I love this tool because it gives you multiple sizes for each block so you don't have to over think. I machine quilted inside each star with a matching thread, then used white for the rest of the outline quilting.  I machine bound it as well - I'm getting better at that for small projects.

Also in the works for the weekend- a couple more zip bags (at least one of them another oval box bag from Aneela's tutorial).  These will be gifts and I can't show them here yet.  ;)  Always nice to plan sewing projects for friends!
measures approx. 16" x 16"
