Gatton Stars Quilt

The Gatton stars quilted I quilted in 2013 for Jan a customer in my guild “Waverley Patchworkers Inc”.  The quilt is designed by Michelle Yeo and is made from beautiful reproduction fabrics.

The Gatton Stars quilt is a medallion quilt consisting of a central original block surrounded by a border of Flying Geese and then a border of Le Moyne Stars. A second Flying Geese border is then featured and the quilt is completed with a border of Blazing Star blocks.

Right from the beginning I wanted the quilting on Jan’s quilt to be unique and so I set about designing all the quilting designs for this quilt. I wanted the quilting to give a sense of balance and uniformity to the quilt. Jan was particularly pleased with the feathers and arcs combination around the central star.  The arcs continue across both borders. Jan’s hand pieced “Gatton Stars” quilt was beautifully hand pieced and was an absolute pleasure to quilt. Thank you Jan for allowing me to quilt your Gatton Star.
