August Goal Completed

My goal this month was to make a quilt using some of the LeMoyne stars I've been hoarding. 
This is my Stars and Bars quilt, loosely based on a Missouri Star pattern. It will be donated to our local QOV group. 

Yesterday we had a rainy day (we really needed it!) so I was able to get this quilted and bound with a week to spare--yay! 

The stars across the top are 6" and the side stars are 7".  The stripes are jelly roll strips and the blue inner borders made the math for two different sized stars work out--lol! 

Like last months quilt, I used the Easy Orange Peel pantograph for the quilting.
I like that the design is a little traditional and a little modern.


I was asked about the QOV label on my quilt last month. The labels I use on my QOV quilts are from a panel I purchased several years ago. I don't have a selvage to give more information on them--sorry!
I'm not sure why the label has a space for one's age--is that a thing anyone else puts on their quilts??? I guess if a seven year old made the quilt rather than a 67 year old, it would be something to document, but I think I will pass on putting my age on the quilt!

  1. LOL. I love that quilt label but agree that age is a strange thing to include. I would definitely pass on putting my age, too. It's hard to tell ages of people on blogs but perhaps we're only a year apart?

    This is a wonderful quilt, Karen. I'm sure some veteran will feel honored to have it keep him or her warm.

  9. I remember seeing samplers with girls ages on them, but only a few quilts with makers age - which I guess in their day was "old" and perhaps was something to celebrate that they lived that long? Or could see well enough to do hand work! LOL

  12. What a generous way to use those stars. It's a great layout. Age? no, way. Someone will just have to figure it out.

  15. Nice finish. And, no I definitely do not add my age to my labels! I do try to label them but I don’t always succeed.
