Week of January 1, 2017 – Little Star Quilts

Happy New Year 2017!  I know it is time to make resolutions and all that, but here are a few I am including:  Forget the weight loss, I plan to GAIN fabric stash and finish at least four UFOs this year.  How about you?  Of course, that doesn’t mean that I won’t start some new and fun projects but it might be good to do a little digging and find old UFOs that need attention.  In the meantime, I want to share some little Star Quilts with you.

star-christmas-starThis little red and white (8.25” x 10.5”) star quilt just begged to be made last month and be put on a doll bed.  It’s funny how I don’t often think of making a seasonal quilt until I am in the midst of the season and then it takes over and has to be done.  Am I the only one?  I hope not.

This next little Friendship Star quilt (13” x 16”)  was copied from my friend Jane Nelson.  I was at her home in October for our Doll Quilt Divas group meeting and she had this one hanging in her studio.  I just had to go home and reproduce it with wonderful civil war fabrics like she had done.  I love the secondary Churn Dash pattern that emerges at the intersections of the sashing.

star-star-brightI was able to purchase this next quilt from the Alzheimer’s fundraising Auction website in 2013.  It was made by Martha Wolfersberger from Montana.  She calls it Star Bright (8.75” x 11.75”).  It is an absolute miniature treasure.  She has not only done amazing piecing but then she quilted it with variegated metallic thread, hence the name Star Bright.  I think It is one of the best miniatures I have in my collection.

There are so many wonderful and interesting star patterns that exist.  The last two quilts I want to share with you are  read more.....
