Blue And White Stars...

This is what happens when I'm laid up with a laptop and Corgi for company. I graze on the Internet and find lovely things. Now, before you ask...No. I do not iron my pillowcases. (I know it doesn't look like it either.)
I found a lady on eBay who sells beautiful quilts that are hand quilted. You know how much I adore blue and white! This star-patterned quilt measures 70" x 84", and is as soft and clean as it appears.
The creator chose to echo a star pattern in her hand quilting. Every single stitch is perfect and the piecing is immaculate, too.
It was finished with points along the border, creating a frame around all the stars. I think this was the best possible choice. 
This is the photograph from the listing. It better shows the border than my photographs. I've sent a message to the seller to see if I can find out more about the seamstress who created this quilt. I want to make a label for it that will give it provenance for the future.

If you're interested in checking out some of the other gorgeous quilts she's listed in her eBay shop, you can either search for "textileanne" on Ebay, or CLICK THIS LINK. You may be surprised when you see her prices. This one was extremely reasonable, especially since I was the only bidder!

I'm back in the studio today. (I'm so HAPPY!) I have orders for four Brynwood Clutch Wallets and I want to get them made and on their way. Don't forget my readers will receive a $10 discount on wallet purchases until March 17th. (www.BrynwoodNeedleworks.com)

Happy Weekend, my friends!
(Can you tell I'm feeling better?)
