This Ohio Star lap quilt is my third one. I did it for my mother more then twenty years ago. It was displayed in her lounge, she enjoyed it a lot and though washed too many times, it had remained in a good condition.

I hand pieced it and hand quilted it.

The size is 46" x 46", and each Ohio Star block measures 10.5" x 10.5".

  3. Oh WOW! Actually a double WOW is necessary since you hand pieced and hand quilted this beautiful quilt! I have never hand pieced or hand quilted, yesterday was the first time I even hand stitched a binding on a small project. I found it really relaxing and enjoyable so I may have to take the next step and hand piece. Thank you for sharing and inspiring. Have a wonderful creative day!

  12. Oh what a beautiful classic quilt! There's a reason patterns like the Ohio star have hung around for so long isn't there and what a pretty example you made.

  13. Another beauty, Christine :-)
    Yes, there was a time when I had the patience to do the whole thing by hand too, my first ever quilt, full double size one. I don't think I could do it again!

  14. I bought an unfinished quilt to with those same fabrics and quilted it for my mom this summer. She loved those colors. Unfortunately she died before she could use it. Now I think of her whenever I look at it.
