Here's my current projects:
1. The Hex/Star you have all seen before. I am currently hand quilting it.
2. This is the backing for the Hex/Star. Yes, it is blue and this fabric doesn't appear anywhere in the top. This is in keeping with the practices used by the Pennsylvania Germans ca. 1870. There is a quarter next to it for scaling purposes.
3. A Bethlehem Star that I am hand piecing. This is my second one. The first one I made was ca. 1870's fabrics and is in the International Quilt Museum at the University of Nebraska. This version is made with ca. 1840's fabrics.
4. This is a possible pieced border for the Bethlehem Star.
That's all I am working on right now.
Till next time.....
