Quilt Show: Day 3

This one is from a new customer, Donna. She's a member of my Guild and is an excellent piecer. She wasn't happy with this quilt when she finished it, so my goal was to make it so pretty when she got it back that she'd change  her mind.

When I first looked at this quilt, I immediately thought it needed something more than an allover, but not anything so busy as to take away from the stars. I got out my mylar sheets and started drawing and then sent her this idea to see what she thought.

She's still not in love with it, but she likes it better than before. This is how it turned out...

A close up:
The back; if you click on it to make it larger, you can see the fun pattern of the star on the back.


  1. My mom had a block from this pattern in some of her unfinished projects. I don't believe she ever did the entire quilt. I framed the block and it turned out beautiful. Love the quilting you did on it.

  2. I don't understand why your customer isn't keen on this quilt, it's great especially now that you have added your magic star dust!

    Best Wishes

  3. Deborah, I too have that block, unfinished, of course. Kay, I'm just pleased that she likes it better. I loved the colors.
