    Signature Quilt with Batiks

    This quilt, “A Harvest of Blessings”, is a going away gift that our family just finished for our associate pastor's family. They are moving up North & our family worked together to design, piece & quilt this signature quilt for them. The whole family is very dear to us and we wanted to give them something to remind them of those in Texas that will miss them very much. The medallion center is a Carpenter’s Star. The center of the Ohio Star blocks represent different things about the family that took place while they lived here in Texas. We used Hobbs cotton batting and free motion quilted it on my Bernina 1630.
