Off the Frame....

   Two years ago right around this time of year, I was dropping my younger teen girl off at a big college for a 4H event. Grief over the realization of her growing up led me to a stroll through several local antique shops. That is where I found it: the vintage star quilt top.

   Other projects and parts of life led this quilt to the 'treasure tub' where it waited to be rediscovered and brought to the frame. A dear friend has purchased this quilt- now complete and ready for relocation.
   Carefully hand quilted to enhance the natural loft of stars and triangles, the quilt is backed with a vintage muslin sheet and bound with 'denim wash' cotton.
   Just for a touch of whimsy, each corner has a three point fan motif quilted in the shadow. With all the stitching complete this pretty vintage treasure is ready for it's new home.

   Satisfaction abounds with the completion of one project...and the start of a new one. Stay tuned for pictures of a new quilt already on the frame!
