1. Jack in the Box Mini by Sharon McConnell

 Sharon made the Jack in the Box block featuring Charleston fabrics and turned it into a mini quilt masterpiece! The reds and blues pop from the white background, having me dreaming about the Fourth of July and picnics at the beach! The sashing with cornerstones  adds the perfect finishing touch to this mini! 


 2. Ohio Star Block Pillow by Karen O'Connor

 Karen made the Ohio Star block featuring Woodlands Fusion and turned it into the most gorgeous pair of pillows!  She added a border to her blocks with Linen from The Denim Studio and quilted it with grid straight line quilting. I love the decorative stitches she used with varies colors of contrasting threads.

 Amy made the Single Irish Chain block featuring Little Town fabrics . She turned her  block into the sweetest Holiday stocking! This is definitely going on my to sew list!

 Kate made the Crossed Canoes block featuring Blush fabrics.  She turned her blocks into a colorful scrappy mini. I would love to see this turned into a giant quilt! Wouldn't it make the perfect summer quilt to bring to the beach?!


5. Morning Star Hoop Quilt by AnneMarie Chany

AnneMarie made the Morning Star block featuring Indie Folk fabrics. She turned her block into a hoop quilt with hand stitching details that has me wanting to add hand stitching to all my quilts.

 Yvonne made the Jackknife block featuring Nightfall Farbics . The fussy cut bunnies are absolutely darling! I would love to see this hanging in a little girls or boys room!
