Sailing Through Life Under the Stars
This quilt (40" by 48") was a wedding present for
my oldest nephew, Christopher, who is my
oldest sister's (Sarah) son. Christopher and Laura
Campbell were married 16 April 2005.
The center star was pieced then triangles and rectangles were pieced into it to form one large rectangle. Then another rectangle of blue background was added to the top and bottom.
The small stars and sailboats around the border were foundation paper pieced so they were all very precise. These were then connected in rows and joined to the center star.
The big center star was echo-quilted in blue thread and continued until the border. The quilt took 87 hours to complete.
