Quiltathon progress

I'm getting some of my tops finished! This is the 5th time I've made this tabletopper/wallhanging and the second time in this color scheme. I just love this pattern and need to have at least one on hand to give as a gift so I'll probably keep making them. The quilt was first found at:
http://mccallsquilting.com/golden/39_heart/
I revised the pattern with inspiration from one of the Yahoo groups I am a member of and made it octagonal instead of square.

These next two quilts are the same pattern, but with the colors arranged two different ways. This was a Spidron workshop I did in one of my Yahoo groups in August, 2007. This is the definition according to Wikipedia: In geometry, a spidron is a continuous flat geometric figure composed entirely of triangles, where, for every pair of joining triangles, each has a leg of the other as one of its legs, and neither has any point inside the interior of the other. The first quilt is how the pattern was done for the workshop. The second quilt I did because I wanted to see how the colors made up stars within stars.

Your quilts are lovely. Could you tell me what pattern you used for both. It looks like the top one is the right size for a table. Is that correct? That is what is am looking for.

Hi Katleen,

Great Job!
Happy stitching!
