Star light, Star bright

First star I see tonight, Wish I may, Wish I might, Have the wish I wish tonight.


This all started because I wanted to applique on a Mariner’s Compass.  Then it just grew and grew.  I think that I tried 5 different fabrics to mount the compass on before I found one that really works.  The fabrics came from some of my travels (Fabric Shack in  Virginia Beach, VA,  Cosmic Cow in Lincoln, NE) and pieces from my stash.  It is hand appliqued and hand quilted.

The size is 60 x 60.  It has a piping binding.

  1. Hi Nan, Fabulous! Love this quilt, well done!

  2. That appliqué is outstanding, as is the hand quilting. Worth every minute of time spent on it, I’d say. A beautiful piece of work.

  3. The applique really complements the star, and I love your border choice! It draws the eye to the star and really makes the star pop. What a great composition!

  4. It’s beautiful! Will you enter it in a show?
