This is my customers quilt. She told me to customize it for her and do what ever I wanted. I looked at the quilt for a few days and not only did it sing to me but I just kept seeing stars. The red and blue fabric that she chose has stars in it. So I quilted stars all over this quilt. There are 100 stars per block and 1876 stars from top to bottom.
Thank you for taking a look.

Beautiful quilt and the quilting really brought it to life. I am always curious when I see such perfectly symmetrical LA quilting if a panto or stencil was used or computer guided. I don't think it is humanly possible to get such perfect symmetry and all the elements the same size like this when free-hand quilting with no tools, marking or aids but I am still a newby to LA quilting. So could you elaborate please what technique you used to acheive such beautiful results? Thanks!

Oh... Burgoyne Surrounded... The battle that changed the US history! Perfect in the red white and blue colors.

I just love what you have done here. Beautiful!
