Show & Tell Tuesday
(or is it Wednesday)
I have two quilts to share today.
Gina Gempesaw of Gem Hill Quilts designed Keystone Stars in 2009. It was offered as a Block of the Month by Country Quiltworks.
Each month I was given fabric to complete two blocks. The blocks are all constructed in exactly the same way, only with different fabric.
The pieced border was a little tricky for me, but I was able to figure it out. This pieced border definitely adds to the appeal of this quilt.
I completed Keystone Stars in 2010 and it measures 77" X 102".
Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth has an interesting story. I was participating in a mystery quilt a few years ago. I had a pretty jelly roll that I wanted to use and I decided to use it for this mystery.
As I was working the pattern I misread the directions. I was supposed to slice the strip sets I had constructed in two different ways but I only sliced them in one direction.
I figured the pattern and fabric was a loss until I decided to be a little creative with my mis-cut blocks.
The finished quilt looks nothing like the original pattern but I like the result any way.
I display this quilt at Christmas time because of the beautiful red, green and ecru fabric. It was completed in 2011 and it measures 62" X 65".
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
