Clarke Co. Fair -Part 10
This quilt is a Marti Mitchell design made by Joann J. who does alot of her quilt designs. This quilt was a block of the month. Joann says "I wish I would have made two. Both my sons would like to have it. They will have to decide after I am gone, who gets the quilt."
When the quilt guild had a two color quilt challenge, members drew the color of the quilt they were going to make from a basket that had 48 colors in it. NO peeking! Joann J's color was mauve. The pattern she chose to make was 3-D Stars from a 3-D pattern. This quilt has stars in it. Do you see them all. The stars are made 3-D by folding fabric squares in half diagonal and sewing the seams into the seams. It was easy to find fabrics this color and even the backing is a mauve print. Machine quilted by Betty M.
