Quilts of the Past: Delectable Mountain Star
This is a quilt I finished in 2008: Delectable Mountain Star. It was part of the 4-quilt series I made from my late mother's clothing, one quilt for each of us kids. This is the quilt that made me not love half-square triangles anymore. The background was a bunch of old cotton sheeting that was in her scrap bag. The colored fabrics were all sorts: old aprons, shirts, jumpers; some 100% cotton and others not. Some were heavier weight than others.
The quilt is queen-sized and lives with my brother Andy in Virginia.
