Quilting and Applique

I finished the quilting on the twin quilt (1 of 2) yesterday - yay! Today I'm making binding for both twin quilts. As you may remember, the second quilt is the same colors and layout but the alternating blocks are stars instead of nine patches.

I'm trying to decide if I should quilt them both the same. Or I could simple meander on the second one. Opinions? I'd love to hear what you think!

I spent the afternoon/evening on appliqué - this is a block I've designed for a special project. I'll be able to talk about it very soon, I promise!

So what else is new around here? I got a new car this week. I actually got a new-to-me car in December when we bought my in-laws' 4 year old SUV. We sold my 11 year old Toyota Sequoia that had taken me over 117,000 miles. Let's just say I never made friends with the hand-me-down car. I really hated it.

So hubby has taken possession of that one and I have something I really like. And it's ORANGE! Yes, I have an orange car - gotta love it!
