Virtual Trunk Show #1: STARS

Cathi mentioned to me about doing a virtual trunk show for my quilts.  I thought it was an excellent idea.  Thanks, Cathi!

I picked the subject of STARS to kick off my virtual trunk show because star blocks (in any variation) are my favorites among all pieced blocks.  I am showing only one picture for each quilt.  Feel free to click on the links provided to view more pictures of the individual quilts.

I think many quilters naturally gravitate toward stars block because stars in themselves fascinate and intrigue, and even more than that, stars direct our thoughts heavenward.

“I see the stars…. Thy power throughout the universe displayed.  Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee; How Great Thou art!  How Great Thou art!”
