Classic LeMoyne Star

Have you ever been inspired by an antique quilt and recreated it in your own fabric choices?
As quilters, we have a rich history upon which to reflect. Countless artists and their work have come before us, and serve as inspiration to our current work. 
The February 2016 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting features a quilt called "Ageless Beauty," a hand-pieced LeMoyne Star design from quilt collector Tara Lynn Baisden. 

As always, AP&Q offers a Color Option, showing the quilt in a current fabric collection. We were tickled pink that they chose to remake the "Ageless Beauty" quilt using Barbara J. Eikmeier's Vintage Shirting & Dress Prints collection! The blues, reds, and creams give this starry design a patriotic feel.
