Bethlehem Star Quilt


I finished quilting the 1930's Bethlehem Star quilt last week, and am very happy with the way it turned out. The quilt is 65 x 65 inches square. The outer border is quilted with piano keys and the inner border with a freehand flower. I used an 80/20 batting and 100% cotton thread from Signature in white.


The background is quilted in a whimsical feather design using a mix of formal feathers and a feather with a curl. The feathers change direction within the large block which adds a lot of movement to the quilting. I chose to quilt the section where 4 blocks come together and treat it like I would an alternate block.


The stars are quilted with a continuous curve design.

Below is a video I posted on YouTube about the quilting.
