SPANGLED STARS from Q-BITS

Finished in time for the summer patriotic holidays.

I'm on my mission to finish up some old quilt tops that never made it to the quilting stage. This top is "Spangled Stars" from 2015.  My original design was in my book about signature quilts and called "Keepsake Star" and was made in 2001.  In 2021, I also used the design to make "Keepsake Star Relived". 


THE STATS:  Spangled Stars, 2015-2022, 30"x30", Machine pieced, Machine quilted.


I'm still fond of this design based on an old traditional star block.

KEEPSAKE STAR, 2001
