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

QUILT # 17: Old Stars, New Day: 94" x 94". machine pieced, longarm quilted, 2013 Quilted by Rebecca McCarthy.

The Story: The 2009 Block of the Month pattern for The Quilt Show, designed by Sue Garman, this is a variation of Sue's Washington Medallion quilt. In this one, the pieces are smaller. I love the Feathered Star Center, which has become a trademark of a lot of my quilts. I used some of my favorite fabrics in this quilt.

It was featured as one of the best 500 Traditional Quilts in the book by that name, published in 2014. After seeing this quilt in several shows, one day I saw the "oops"--can you spot it?

Let's quilt.
