My Journey--QUILT #6

 Another quilt from the Special Exhibit My Joyful Journey, part of the Virtual Quilt Festival, December 3-5, 2020.

QUILT #6 If It's Purple...94" x 94", hand applique', machine pieced, hand quilted, 1995

The Story: Block patterns were from my guild as Block of the Month patterns. This began my love of Feathered Star Medallion quilts and pairing applique' blocks with pieced blocks. From the beginning, it was intended as a wedding quilt for the first of my sons to marry. In 2012 it was presented to Andrew Wilkins and his bride Lauren Santoro. 

Beautifully hand quilted by my friend. This quilt won Best of Show in the Heritage Quilters of Huntsville show, Fanfare 1995 and was included in the Special Exhibit "Traditional Treasures", Houston 2013: 

Let's quilt. 



  1. That is beautiful. I know a lot of work and planning and stitching went into it.

  2. I enjoy feather stars as well and am surprised they don't show up more often on blogs and sew alongs.....
