Moon and Stars
Taking a break from the beloved red and green quilts to work on something totally different. Just finished the first block for the Moon and Stars quilt from McCall's Vintage Quilting magazine, Spring 2006 issue. I loved this quilt from the moment I saw it, and this seemed to be the right time of year to start it! The antique quilt was made in Texas in 1896. Once more blocks are finished and put together, will post so the stars in the corners show up. Don't you just love the graphic appeal of two-color quilts?
So excited that the pieced baskets from the Reproduction group swap arrived this last week. They are all so unique and wonderful - so fun to see the creativity and marvelous work that went into these blocks and am thinking about how to put them together. Will definitely make at least two to six more blocks to go with these.
