Quilt Retreat

I went to an awesome retreat with the Valley of the Sun Quilters. Patrick Lose came and did a trunk show. I bought tons of his amazing satinesque fabric which I then used as the background for my lone star and the background for his Love Blossoms pattern. Here they are. On Love Blossoms I only used one color for all the pieces and then blanket stitched around every piece in white. I love how it turned out!

Wow! Those are both really awesome! I love how the colors swirl into the center on the lone star.

Thanks! I liked this layout better than the traditional lone star layout.
