Shannon’s Quilt

May 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.



  1. What a heartwarming gesture! You and the others are such generous and loving souls. This quilt is absolutely exquisitely made and what wonderful colors. Your quilting is par excellence! (I have GOT to get started on mine just so I can acquire your services).
