    This is a quilt I made for my sister. The original plan was to use the great Colonial panels and 8-pointed stars. After a few months of wrestling with the 8-pointed stars, I decided to make it a sampler and made some additional patches out of simple squares. The stars just seem to be out of my league. Later on, I discovered the joys of paper-piecing, so I might try stars again with paper-piecing.

    That's actually me in the pic :) My sis loved it, but it's hidden off in a closet somewhere. She has 4 dogs and they're really good at tearing stuff up. One of these days, she might get to use it :D

    Gold star upon gold star for you - it looks like it could win a blue ribbon at any show. It is lovely. Great work. Can hardly wait to see more of your work.
