Quilting for Emily's Star

Fancying a change from cardi knitting, I decided to make some quilts for the Emily's Gift neonatal boxes. A quilt was one of the first gifts that I made for both my niece and nephew, and they still enjoyand cherish them everyday. So I was sure that tiny preemie quilts would bring some comfort to tiny babies and their new parents.

I chose the friendship star quilting block because it seemed apt (and is relatively simple to piece together... precision is not my strong point!). I am very proud of the purple with kites quilt, but may have shot beyond my reach with the orange and pink quilt... be kind and ignore the blocks that didn't line up so well. I guess practice makes perfect...
