    I was looking for other pics this evening and came across this one. I love this quilt made by Jerry Belgarde for my book. I love it.

    This quilt is hand quilted.

    It was designed by Jerry Belgarde, she is a Native American quilter. This quilt was made for me for my book Montana Star Quilts. I love her stars.

    I live very close to an area that has a large population of American Indians who would love to have this beautiful work of art.

    Stewy the diagram for this is in my book Montana star quilts already drafted. It is a variation on the fast star which I did a tutorial on. This design belong to Jerry Belgarde who made this specific quilt for my book, she and John Flynn worked out the eagles for a class they did together and gave them to me for my book. John also has this quilt in his book. Thought you might enjoy some of the history of the quilt.

    I thought you might like the history and I think Jerry would love that you worked it out for yourself. I love the quilt and I like Jerry's work. This particular quilt was at quilt market in Houston as well, but I do not remember the year.

    There is not actually a pattern with directions, pattern pieces with a diagram. I did not write directions for it, since it is not my design and the book is about Native star quilt uses, I think you have captured the essence of the idea perfectly.

    I wish we lived closer I re your fabric shortage problem - I could hook you up.

That way no copyright issues are being broken. Thank you for putting out that there is apattern for fokls to use if they like this quilt. Me I love it and think it will make a great Q.o.V. quilt. I am hungup on making charity quilts. I just have a fabric shortage issue. Thank you for the education heads up.
