Jewish Star Quilt
I am very proud of this double bed quilt which was made on order for a friend who chose the design and most of the fabrics. It is based on a design called "Six-pointed Stars" by Ann Feitelson of Montague, Massachusetts and appeared in QNM, November 2005. The striking fabrics are Damascus silks that were purchased in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Each Jewish star is made up of 6 diamonds, pieced together into larger diamonds creating an effect of smaller stars within larger stars. The quilt measures 77 inches wide by 86 inches long.
