You'll have stars in your eyes and a star quilt in your future after seeing these dazzling examples of the Lone Star quilt design. Enjoy seeing lots of quilts from the book All-Star Quilts: 10 Strip-Pieced Lone Star Sparklers by Helen Frost and Blanch Young. Variations include Touching Stars, Blazing Star, Broken Star, Double Star, and more. Hear the story of Helen's 37-year involvement with this fascinating design.
Enjoy a trunk show of these sweet little patchwork and appliquéd gems. Helen will trace the history of crib and cradle quilts using examples from her collection. She will also be sharing excerpts - sometimes humorous and sometimes poignant - from diaries and letters of mothers from the past.
45-minute trunk show*
*Some presentations are available as either a powerpoint or a trunk show, depending on logistics. Contact Helen for more information.
One quilt display stand; two tables (one for the quilts before they are shown and one for after they are shown); another small table for merchandise. For trunk shows, at least two volunteers to hold and fold the quilts.
