finishing mode and put

of using them in a border on

changed and three

 Star quilts were the result.

I have earned a trademark
in quilt club by using these

This is a bargello quilt I made
out of fabrics I purchased
on a bus trip to Sun Prairie.
We had stopped at
Waunakee and Reedsburg
first. My friends were upset
that I hadn't made any 
purchases at the first two
stores, so I broke down
and bought these fabrics
at our last stop.
Now I am glad I did because
I really like this wall hanging.
It is 18 x 35 inches.
Mary Jane also liked this piece. 
She persuaded me to sell it to
her  for a Xmas gift in 2001. 
Our July 2002 vacation we spent 
at  the Erickson farm and I
 shopped at Backstreet Quilt
 Shoppe in New Glarus to 
 reproduce this piece, but these 
 colors were not available.
 I did however find 
soft blue, pink and greens
for a 3 -block wallhanging
with a 6" sawtooth star within
 a 12"  star.

liked it as much as I did.

genes. It hangs in the spare
