Barr Star Quilt (83.5" x 83.5")

Barr Star was inspired by a quilt made by my Great Grandmother Barr just over 100 years ago. My mother gave it to me last summer, when our family home was being sold. I had no idea she did work so similar to my own, even though it was her daughter (my grandmother) who taught me to sew. It was a great joy to 'spend time with her' as I recreated her piece with my own spin, a design that required a good deal of math skills and technical precision. I marvelled at how she was able make her version on a farm, with seven kids and no rotary cutter or electricity. My version includes a titch of black and  lined serpentine stitching to give it a splash of fresh, modern style.

The pieced front is made with 100% natural cottons, as are the batting and backing. Please see the Info page for laundering information.
