    I made this quilt years ago - probably back in the 80's.
    I still like it, but it is not my favorite pattern. (Ohio Star)

    My mother hand quilted it.

    it is a lovely quilt, especially with the memory of your mother quilting it.

    That's an excellent first quilt. It looks like you've been quilting for years.

    Wow! This takes me back to the 80's also. Made the Ohio Star in red, white, and blue for my son to take to college. He and beloved DIL have hung it on the wall next to the stairway going up to the second floor. Sunlight never touches it and it is just high enough for the VERY simple quilting lines to hide in the shadows. Thanks for sharing yours.
