Blue Stars

I love this quilt. Blue makes some people sad but not me. I surround myself with it and I always feel better.
Can you see the Baptist Fan quilting design? It's an old fashioned favorite and was machine quilted by Dawn Larsen before my book Remembering Adelia came out. I bought myself a Baptist Fan stencil at a booth at a quilt show and I will try to use it to mark  a small quilt someday for hand quilting.
Look closely - these are half-square triangles arranged to look like LeMoyne Stars. A very easy pattern.
Thank goodness for blue and puppy love . . . .
