This quilt was made for the 2010 American Quilt Study Group, 19th Century Stars Challenge and was patterned in the Stars book published by Kansas City Star. Click here to see another version of this quilt and the 1890's antique inspiration quilt.
Now back to the Pilgrim Roy Quilt:
This quilt was hand appliqued and then the applique flowers and baskets were stuffed for a trapunto effect. While the borders/ major seams were machine quilted, the applique motifs and blocks were hand quilted. The Legacy wool batting was a dream to quilt through and even with heavier thread I was getting about 10 stitches per inch without (hardly) trying.
