This quilt started with the purchase of the fabric. A few years ago my friend Pam was working in Ft. Worth and I drove down to visit her for a few days. I found a fat quarter bundle of a fabric line called "Picket Fence" from Moda. I had no idea what I would do with it, I just knew I needed to own it. That evening while Pam and I were sitting around admiring our purchases and flipping through some quilting magazines I saw a quilt with this star block pattern. I don't remember what the magazine was or the name of the design, but I did a quick sketch of the block and then when I came home designed the quilt.
The quilting is a pantograph pattern called Deb's Dahlias and I used bright kelly green thread. It will be bound with the same polka dot fabric seen in the inner border. You are looking at the length of the quilt on the machine. It measures 82 x 98. I am so pleased with the way it has turned out that I do believe I will enter it in the state fair.
