Shannon’s QuiltMay 5, 2009
Quilt Studio is putting together some quilts to give to Rian’s son’s family as they lost everything in a fire. This quilt had a lot of hands on it. Barbara C was given the stars that were pieced by a neighbor. Barbara used the stars to create the top and added the borders. I quilted it and I will bind it.
I wanted to use the panto Ribbons and Roses on it but I didn’t want to run the panto over the stars. So I stopped the panto at the edge of the star blocks and pulled out images of the roses to place in the corners. Then I did my favorite, Terry Twist, in the stars.
Hopefully this will bring some comfort to the family as they piece their lives back together.
