Nancy’s Swirling Stars

Days seem to pass so quickly anymore.  It seems like last year when I quilted this for Nancy, but it was just last month…. well, in March.

For this quilt, since it will be “loved” on a daily basis, Nancy chose an allover Edge to Edge quilting design.  She has a star in each corner, so stars were a part of the quilting design.

Another special thing about this quilt is that it is made with Kansas Troubles fabrics, so I decided to hide an outline of a Kansas map in the bottom of the quilt right above where I quilted her “signature” for her artwork.

This is a great sampler quilt (different quilt patterns in each of the blocks).  If you’d like the pattern for this one, I’m sure Nancy could point you in the right direction!  😉

For now, here are a few examples…

          

If you have extra jelly rolls…

Or, if you’re into Modern Quilting, try this one.
