Sunday Sewing

I finished a small quilt for my best customer…my mom 🙂  We agreed on a pantograph so it was quick and easy to get this done as a sample for a class she is teaching on using stripes.

I also made two more blocks for my True Blue 92 quilt.  The pattern is Double Friendship Star (pattern from Quilter’s Cache website).
