I made this quilt for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. He was in seminary school then, now is a chaplain in the Army recently returned to the United States from his second tour of duty in Iraq.
Amy took these photos for me (thank you), but I’m not sure you can tell how lovely the fabrics are. The dark fabrics are jewel tone in nature (ruby, sapphire, emerald, and brown topaz). I think I pieced the quilt around 1994 (Amy thinks 2000 or 2001, but I think I pieced it much earlier and it just took that long to get it quilted). It is machine pieced, 71 in X 97 in. I don’t believe I did the quilting, unsure who did.
The setting is a play on the Jacob’s Ladder block to form a cross with the center block, God’s Eye (Ojo).
Christmas Star ………………….. unsure, maybe King David’s Crown
The fact that I can’t recall all the quilt block names is a great example of why we quilters should document our ideas, inspiration, and sources as we make our quilts. If anyone can correct me, I’d be grateful.
