    All 3 quilts are made using the same pattern and you can see how very different they are. Started in 1963 shortly after we were married. Ugly quilt so stored it away to learn more. Took it out after our daughter's wedding and totally reconstructed it and completed it just before our 38th anniversary; hence the name. The pattern will be attached as a full sized download for those who want them. You assemble each block around a square - you are framing the square. When you sew the completed block together into two rows, you will see the stars forming using the corners of 4 squares.

    My goodness, you were quick to view it. I've added more attachments since you viewed. There are 3 quilts shown, close ups of the squares on the quilt which can't be seen in the photo plus the pattern layout and full sized templates. Just thought I'd let you know in case you wanted to see everything. Thank you.

    Thank you so much. I've made many quilts during my 46 + years of learning but this one is dear to my heart because it was my first and lived for so long as a UFO and I was so proud to figure out a way to make it beautiful from it's ugly duckling stage.

    Thank you everyone for all of your wonderful replies. I'd posted this quilt in another subject and several have asked for more information so decided to just share it openly and hopefully cover it for everyone.

    Thank you MaryAnna. Most definitely worth the effort, patience, love and determination it took to learn enough to pull it off.

    Have to share this comment with all of you who have posted. Can you believe, that one of the first people I showed the complete quilt to, informed me that it was NOT a real quilt because of the embroidery work on it. By then I knew I was talking to a judgemental scrooge as back when I started this quilt top, many ladies were making embroidery squares to eventually turn into a quilt. Perhaps such weren't as common as scratch quilts but then when I started this, the area we lived in was in a quilters blight anyway. Now everyone who sees it raves about it. I'm just thrilled it is no longer a UFO and that I learned enough to finish it up. Thank you everyone for being interested in this quilt.

    They are all beautiful G-Patty!!! When I first started quilting using any kind of a machine was not considered quilting.
    Recently, in a popular quilt mag, all of the baby quilt contest winners were completely by machine. The 2 hand quilted entries were gorgeous (IMO) and did not place at all.
    I think both machine and hand quilting are skills to be learned and each has its place.
    But my grand made her first quilt at 12 yo and said she has no desire to learn by hand lol!!!!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing the photos and the stories! I'm in awe that you never gave up on the 38 year quilt! How much more inspirational can one beautiful quilt be!!! I think I really love the BRIGHT one best but that embroidered block quilt has me thinking of a setting for some of my blocks..thanks again!

    Thank you so much. Keep watching, I'll find the photo of the original attempt, scan it in and share but have a Happy Stitchers meeting to attend so it won't come until evening or tomorrow.
