Summer Stitchin'

I have over 40 individual miter squares done, so I decided to try seaming them together. This is a project to do a little at a time, rather than all at once! Here is the view from the back...And the front. Not perfect, but once it is all together with many colors, I don't think anyone will take the time to critique the seams! I decided that I need to sew the seams with matching yarn, so I will carry each color up the back so there aren't any alternate colors poking through.
And here are more Quilts of Valor donations. I used pantographs on these to get them done quickly. Pinwheels...
And stars.
Here is some detail of the Linda Taylor feather pantograph that I used. I stitched them with red/white/blue varigated thread, which was perfect for the busy fabric.
No baby pictures today...I'm out of space!
