Stars in a Time Warp Finish

So nice to call this done. I really enjoyed making these stars along with so many others. Thank you Barbara Brackman at Civil War Quilts! I just saw that she is starting an Antebellum Album Quilt Block of the Month in January. Looking forward to it!

Here is some detail of the quilting. It was quilted by Dot at Sew Classic Fabrics in Harrisonburg Virginia.

I hope to have another finished quilt to share soon.

Two Love

we need love 25"x25"

While I was piecing the quilt below, I was inspired to make the quilt above. Funny how that happens.

her name was heather heyer 35"x35"

I needed the extra time to think about how I wanted to quilt this one. In the machine quilting I wrote-

love thy neighbor
family  friend
enemy  you  them
we are one

Around the wording I tried to quilt the breeze/spirit. It looks better in some places than others.
This quilt was accepted into the Subversive/Domestic Textile Arts exhibit at the Shenandoah Valley Art Center in Waynesboro, Virginia. The exhibit runs from December 9 to January 20.
Here are some detailed views. Click to enlarge.

When I first posted about this quilt I asked others to join me in making a Love Thy Neighbor quilt. Jane O. talks about hers in this post.  Please let me know if you also have one to share.
