Size Matters!

Welcome to our day of Moda's "Size Matters" blog hop.  When we first heard the theme of this event, we thought about how size matters in our lives.  We came up with a few things, but nothing about size mattered more to us then hair in the 80s (and early 90s).  

Not only did it take us between 1-2 hours to do our hair, my sister and I bought hairspray by the case.  You need a whole lot of that to make it big.  My sister was way luckier than me, however.  She has the thickest head of hair- perfect for acheiving the biggest hair possible. I dug up a picture of her (if I'm doing the blog, I get to choose!).

Ok, back to quilting.  Our take on "size matters" is this quilt.  We used our block(the friendship star) and made 4 different sizes.

The quilt was made from our Road 15 collection.  If you aren't familair with this collection, here is a sample:
