Pinatas de Noche


I finished this little quilt for my kitchen table. I've long been attracted to this traditional pattern because it reminds me of star-shaped piñatas. I had originally thought of making it up in bright colors, but instead, I went through my treasure box of scraps. With the black background, it looks to me like piñatas hanging for a party at night.


Thanks everyone for your kind comments on my March journal quilt. I really like incorporating photos into these pieces.

Beautiful! The dark background really makes the pinatas shine.

You have such fun with scraps! Everytime I dig into my big scrap buckets, I think of you! You must have an abundant source. . .*wink*
