Stars Across America, Quilt in a Day Book from Eleanor Burns
Quilt in a Day
Stars Across America
Quilt Block Party: Series Seven
by: Eleanor Burns
A star sampler with a bit of history thrown in! The stars of this sampler are dedicated to twelve notable women of American history. Each star is dedicated to a famous American woman. Some of the women on these pages fought for suffrage and equal rights. Others spoke and wrote against slavery, or risked their lives on the battlefield of the civil war. And some simply went about the task of earning a living, which is not always so simple. Whatever their chosen work, they tackle it wholeheartedly. I'm proud to salute the courage and resourcefulness that made each of them an American "star".
The pages of Stars Across America have also been enriched by these talented quilters who contributed their time and creativity to develop unique border treatments for each of the blocks. Using Flying Geese patches and other methods from the star blocks, they came up with twelve borders that compliment the stars perfectly.
I hope the stars of this sampler quilt provide a welcome escape from your daily cares. Let yourself get lost in the fabric puzzles. Remember, construction may be a mystery until the final stitch, but it's fun getting there.
Twelve different border treatments and three quilt settings make this book a real value. Patterns included: Barbara Frietchie Star, Harriet Tubman Star, Seminole Star, Harriet Beecher Stowe Star, Clara Barton Star, Sojourner Truth Star, Jane Addams Star, Susan B. Anthony Star, Eleanor Roosevelt Star, Frances Willard Star, Marie Webster Star, and Carrie Hall Star.
Thanks for shopping & happy quilting!!
