One quick star quilt for Finn

OK, one quick star quilt for Finn tonight and then tomorrow I'll find a few more. This quilt is one of my favorites! I saw a picture of this quilt in a magazine about 5 years ago and had to make it. There was no pattern, just the picture of this amish antique quilt. So I drafted the pattern and went to an amish fabric store to get the fabrics!



Well at that time I was not going to hand quilt it myself since I knew I would not do it justice, so my friend in France hand quilted it for me! So this quilt has traveled the world!



Not a large quilt, but one that just makes me happy!

Dawn -

I love this star quilt! I love all the shade of blue. And the green in the alternate squares is lovely. It always amazes me how a simple pattern can be so striking!

Thanks for sharing.

Great star quilt, Dawn. I've never done an Amish style quilt -- it's on that "someday" list!

And, what a bonus -- making a quilt that makes you happy!
