This poor quilt finally got itself finished. I planned it and pieced it and then added a border fabric… which promptly bleed all over the white squares and triangles. So I took it back apart and reset the star and added a different border.

The quilting in the border is not as lavish as I wanted it to be but I was determined to finish the quilting in one year… plus my father gave me a new quilting frame for Christmas 2003 and I was eager to have a quilt on the new frame. This one was quilted on a homemade 3 rail system that did not survive through the whole quilt.

Given to my Dad for Father’s Day, June 19,2005 because I promised him that if he moved back to Tennessee from Florida I would not let him freeze. Returned to me upon his death.
