Machine pieced; hand quilted

“When I first saw this pattern, I knew I wanted to make it for my son and his wife. The construction of this quilt was complicated by the center diamond template dimensions being slightly off. I did not realize this fact until I was going to start the center star points for the third time. Needless to say, this created much frustration and I would put the whole quilt away for long periods of time. My good friend suggested that I use a different pattern, but I was determined to use this pattern. Once I retired, I got to work and spent many hours completing the top. Some of the original star points that wouldn’t go together properly make up the border. I gave my son and his wife their quilt in 2019, the year of their 20th wedding anniversary!”
