A Pound of Stars A Pound of Stars
By: Karen H,
Ontario, Canada

In the late 1970s I was a beginner quilter living in the middle of nowhere! I bought a pound of scraps by mail order as well as some white sheeting and made this quilt. It is entirely pieced (English paper piecing) and hand quilted. It remains one of my favourite quilts!

Batik Mystery Batik Mystery
By: Carol Johnston,
Idaho, USA

The pattern for this Queen Quilt – Batik Mystery is from Quiltmaker magazine, where it was presented over a few month’s time as a mystery pattern. All the fabrics I used are batiks, including the backing. I added the pieced piano-key border and the outside border to increase the size of the piece.

By: Alison Saunders,
Missouri, USA

In March 2013, I selected the pattern “Starburst” by Pleasant Valley. My sister thought I was crazy as I never pieced a quilt before. She showed me how to make HSTs and QSTs but it was the A4A quilt with Michelle Foster that honed my skills to finish it. Thank you both. It is loved by both of them.

  • December 1, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    This is a tough call…I love the Christmas Carol on stage at Interlochen Arts Academy each holiday. But can’t pass up The Charlie Brown Christmas…what great songs. And of course the Grinch who’s heart grew can’t be missed. An there’s the reason for the season story….can’t pick just one!

  • December 1, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    My favorite Christmas story is The Nativity story, followed closely by The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. But then I also always loved The Gift of the Magi too….it’s too hard to pick just one!

  • December 1, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    I have several favorites but would say that it’s basically a toss up between “The Very First Christmas” and “The Little Match Girl.” The star quilts were all beautiful … thanks for sharing.
