Prizes and finished quilt, finally

Wanted to show the prizes I received from Carrie and Rosy for doing the quilt George for Le Petite for July. I had managed to get the top done before leaving on my cruise.

This is a closeup of the little pattern and kit which she also sent. Everyone that entered was to receive this special prize. Just wanted to publicly tell Carrie, Thank YOU.
This is the bright quilt which I finally got quilted.
. The top was done as a strip quilt. When I was on the Just Quilting group and I understand it is still going. So if you think you helped with this quilt or another one like it. L.et me know. Would be fun to hear from you. I want to put a picture of it on Facebook as I know of a couple gals on it
If you click on it to get a better picture and see the colors better.
Now as you can see, Penny liked it. She was siting there washing and I took a video of her. This morning when I got up you could tell she had fun with it over night. The bottom here that was on the floor was all messed up.
I have since put it on the bed to see about the size. Only about a good twin bed. Maybe if one of my grandsons go to collage next year would like a bright quilt.
Had a good visit with my daughter this weekend so now back to sewing on Kids Quiltts. Thank for stopping by

Hello Eileen I have fallen in love with your rose star quilt!!

I'm hoping to make a mini one for a personal swap I've arranged between me and a lady in Ohio, I'm in England.

I have worked out the patterns, but would love any tips?

Did you make up the hexagons and then sew them together after.

Have a great trip and dont worry if you cant get back to me, I shall def let you know when I complete the beauty!
