Red Star At Night...

... Quilter's Delight!

I finally got the blocks set from last year's B.O.M. I love this setting, it's from a pattern by: "Quilts by Designing Friends" out of Lake Jackson, TX. There are actually two setting patterns in one, this being: the "Star Setting Option #1". Nice, huh?

I've named this beauty "Red Star At Night" and it really will be a "quilter's delight" as the large, red setting triangles will be a wonderful place to machine quilt some graceful, arching feathers. This top measures 60" square. I thought about displaying it on a wall in our family room the entire time, but now that it's here in the studio it's going to stay-put! It will hang over the sofa, the colors are absolutely perfect, the sitting area in The Strawberry Patch is decorated in reds and camel-tan!

Hannes and I would like to wish one and all a Happy Valentine's Day, straight from the heart!
(This dog is actually living, breathing "LOVE"; he only masquerades as a canine!)
Life is Good!

Ooooh, this quilt is just beautiful! I love how the middle blocks on the edge are set as diamonds. By the way, I bought postage stamps yesterday and was so pleased when I was offered The Quilts of Gee's Bend. I thought of you. But they are too pretty to put on my bills, so I had to buy plain old ordinary stamps too! Valentine hugs!!
