stars heal

yesterday the starry surprise quilt was mailed - I'm crossing my fingers that it arrives to its destination by saturday and finds the final recipient home from the hospital. if not it will be a most cuddly welcome home gift!

front: two traditional designs - friendship star and flying geese, each star block measures 6" square. top is composed of all batik fabrics

back: center fabric reproduction of fabric from the 1800s (pennsylvania)

detail: hand stitched and hand tied

WAOW ! These beautiful colours against the white snowy back ground at the top ! We had no snow at all this winter and spring is back now

I'd heard about the get-well-quilt and know it was a part of the healing process. Beautiful quilt and beautiful heart.
