The traditional star pattern was my first quilt love and I still love it. When I made this one I searched out really great star patterns to put in a sampler. A sampler is a quilt that was originally used as a catalog of sorts. The sampler was true to it's name. It sampled a number of designs on one quilt. I haven't quite figured out why I chose that sea shell fabric as a background. I think it was because it gave a nice contrast. All taken in, it turned out to be a really calming quilt. It is nap size- 62"x61". Snuggle snuggle.
