This quilt was finished a couple weeks ago, but it was delivered to the wedding couple yesterday, so I can safely post pictures of it here. My mom is attending a wedding tomorrow of a former student of her's. She asked me to help her make a quilt. Now, she does know how to sew and quilt, so I'm not really sure why I was called in to do as much as I did, but I think it was so that I could have input on what I'd be quilting. Probably a good thing or I may have had a paisley-heavily printed background to make pretty!
I designed the quilt to be as simple as possible for her to construct. She had that stipulation - she did have to do something on this project besides the binding. These are simple stars, made to 12". The center star was a little more fussy, but not much so. The Star of David was chosen because the groom's family is Jewish. I left the background in soft tan fabrics so that the quilting would show a lot. The other materials are Anna Griffin fabrics we found at a local rummage-style store at $4-5 per yard. I'd buy more if only I knew what I'd possibly make with them!
I also created the frame that runs through the stars, then densely filled every other section to enhance the stripes.
