    My new challenge quilt

    I'm in a national quilt design contest, in the amateur division, and all the quilts for this phase of the contest have now been posted so I can finally share mine. We only had to make the quilt top, but of course I'll be quilting mine shortly. It had to include an Amish Star block and be larger than 24" x 24"; those were the only requirements.

    Here it is:

    Thanks so much! We only had about four weeks to design and complete it; in that time my father passed away and my husband was in the hospital so it was quite a challenge. It was both therapy and what kept me sane! Thank G-d for quilting!

    That quilt is spectacular! Sometimes great beauty can come from great pain. Try to take that thought as a small consolation for your loss.
