The design was inspired by a design from Jan Krenz’s book, “Lone Star Quilts and Beyond.” It is basically a Lone Star quilt where eight different fabrics (colors) spiral from the center. I used a spiral feather quilting motif along each of the pieced spirals, filling in with small feathers:
All the fabrics were from the “Sand and Surf” collection by Michele D’More for Marcus Brothers. There was a large floral print which I used for the outer border. I chose to follow the large floral motifs for the quilting design:
I used Hobbs 80/20 batting and Superior Thread’s King Tut thread in color #994, Karnak. The quilt was about 95 inches square.
There was a lot of fabric left over, so I was hoping Elizabeth had a son in her future. Stay tuned for “the rest of the story!”
