Clarke Co. Fair - Part 6
The LeMoyne Star pattern was used with Christmas fabric to make this special qullt by Sharon W. in January 2000. It was machine pieced but hand quilted. Can’t you just see this quilt decorating her home at Christmas time. All quilters need to make a Christmas Quilt.
This is the Corvette Quilt made by Janet J. Actually she made two of these quilts. One for her brother in law and one for her husband. The checkered fabric had been curtains that she made for her brother in law. When he moved and no longer needed the curtains, Janet recycled the material into the quilts with the Corvette “novelty” fabric.
Note: even the fabric is used on the back to make it two quilts in one.
Signing up to do a "Block of the Month" from Quilts and Other Notions in Creston offers participants fabric and a pattern each month. On the designated day, participants return with their completed block to get the next block until all blocks are completed one year later. Moda fabric was used in this block of the month and Joan C. chose coordinating fabric to complete this quilt. Machine quilted by Sharon W.
