Well, after 12 years (can't believe that!!) I have finished this quilt for my son Davee. Started it in a workshop with Barb Cleaver, a very special and dear friend of mine who tutors patchwork here in Australia. She is a very inspirational woman! Began 1998 with a single size in mind - Davee was only 13 at the time ... put away after major changes in life ... picked up again 2006 - changed sizes of course and found I was short some of the fabrics of course ... put away after again big changes ... decided this year he was getting it for his 25th Birthday! Well, a bit late as it was 1st October ... I finished it over Christmas whilst he was visiting us. I love it - Davee LOVES it ... what a special time to present it to him! Had to post it home for him as he had lots of luggage on his return - Santa delivered whilst he was here. Hope you enjoy seeing his quilt ... It is made quilt as you go - Log cabin - traditional pieced and set Barn Raising, with stars in the sashing - hence the name "Stars in Davee's Barn". A special quilt for a very loved young man.
