Little Quilts and drawing winner

I received my wonderful doll quilt from Dorothy yesterday. Isn't it amazing?! And yes, that is hand quilting!! Thank you so much Dorothy, it will surely be a treasure in my home.
 Here's a little quilt I made for a friend. A larger version was designed by my other friend Jill. You can find the pattern free at the Baum website.
Here is another quilt I finished but because it is for a special challenge I cannot show it. We each got an old block in red or wine (like the blue one on the back of mine) and we had to make a 24" quilt. We could slice, dice or keep in whole. The unveiling is next month and I'll be able to show it then.

Thank you all for posting your photos or sending me a photo of your Midnight Stars. I had my hubby draw a number which was 7- Maureen from Pursuit of Quilts! Congratulations Maureen. Please email me with your address and I'll get the package in the mail.

Have a wonderful quilty day!!
