Mama's Star of Bethlem Quilt
This quilt was started by my mother in 1949, shortly after she married my father,
and before I was born! She stopped working on it to have 3 children, then worked
on it some more, then had 2 more children, then was tired and frustrated with it
since it was difficult to piece. Part of the difficultly was because she used
cardboard templates to cut the diamond pieces, and the template was not a perfect
diaond shape. Thus, the pieces were not going together perfectly! She gave it to me
in the 1990's but I put it in the closet.
During the summer of 2013, her health was failing so I decided I needed to get it out and finished it for her. I finished it 2 days before she passed away and she was thrilled that it was finished.
I found a purple floral print for the back that coordinates with the front. My youngest sister has it now.
