Quilt for a General

June 16, 2009

This quilt was pieced by Quiltnbee .  She did a lovely job with it. I especially like the fabrics she chose. The background fabric for the stars and the alternating fabrics in the 25 patch blocks are all black on white prints. That gives a continuity to the quilt but still allows for a variation that gives the quilt a touch of “sparkle”.

I also love how she pieced the back. I imagine the squares are left from the piecing of the 25 patch blocks. One of the squares has the name of the piecer and the quilter on it. I like the back almost as much as the front.

Good job, Quiltnbee! This will make a lovely quilt for one of the generals in our army.
