2011 Spring Bloggers Quilt Festival

Here's my addition to Amy's spring bloggers quilt festival.

I saw the antique quilt in a museum and knew I must make one like it. It took me some time to make all the little star blocks (6") but it was worth it. Kathy, my machine quilter, did an awesome job of quilting it.  This is one of my favorite quilts.

The original quilt resides in New Jersey.



Check out the Bloggers Quilt Festival and see all the terrific quilts!  Thanks Amy for hosting this!!

  53. I tried to quickly squeeze my eyes shut when I first glimpsed the photo of this quilt but it was too late. I've been dreaming of poison green and double pink with stars from scraps but was resisting Until now, alas. Such a wonderful and tempting quilt

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love pink and green together. Adding all these stars (100 or so?) makes this a wonderful quilt, Lori. You have a great talent for making antique quilts live on with your own touch.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love the twist on the stars block! Great idea and lovely colours!

    ReplyDelete

  57. I love this quilt so much! Your stars are wonderful (I like that they're done with only one print and a shirting), and I've always liked that zig-zag set -- the alternate pink and green just ramps up the design to a whole new level. Great job, Lori!

    ReplyDelete
