    I Need to Name This Feathered Star...

    I took a class from Marsha McCloskey in November 2010 at the Annapolis, MD Quilt Guild. I sent this Radiant Star to a long-arm quilter who kept it for 15 months (eyes-rolling, I won't even get into that!) I think she did a really nice job on the quilting.

    I'd like to put it in the Annapolis Quilt Guild show this year, but I need to name it. Do you have any suggesstions?

    p.s. The pattern for the feathered star is in Marsha McCloskey's Feathered Star Quilt Blocks I book. I designed the borders.

    I would call it "Oh, my gosh". That was my reaction when I saw it. What a lot of work and a great job

    I'm not good at naming, but that is a stunning - beautiful quilt. What a unique design in the center, and you did a wonderful job on the borders. But 15 months at the LAQ'er. Oh my goodness. I'd have been wondering if I was ever going to get it back... Best of luck to you in the show.

    Pretty quilt, nice feather quilting. Reminds me of sunset at the edge of the forest.

    Flower in the Forest maybe? Whatever you decide, I'm sure ribbons are in your future!

    Rose among the thorns. It's beautiful, whatever it is. The colors and pattern are gorgeous. You did a great job on it.

    Beautiful quilt and quilting, just one question, did she get into the dark blue print on the bottom of the pic with her quilting? If she did, did she also do the same quilting on the other dark points? If not I would remove the quilting in that one point. 15 months way to long for quilting. as for a name hummm how about sunset rose.

    My first thought was "Morning Star" since it looks so bright, more like just before sunrise when the stars seem to fade away ...

    Well she did quilt it beautifully. Maybe she was intimidated by your beautiful top and didn't want to mess it up? The first thing that popped into my head was "Star Of The East" as in the song that goes...Star of the east , oh Bethlehem star...
