This pattern is Victory Star, one put out by Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts (formerly Bonnie Blue Quilts). I have been thinking about Paula lately, as she recently lost her husband under quite tragic circumstances. Paula is a lovely lady, and I had the privilege of taking a class with her once, and Victory Star was a kit that came along with the price of the class. It was very obvious how important her husband and family were to her, and my heart goes out to her in this time of grief.
Since Paula was on my mind, I pulled out my class project box, and the one completed block I had managed to do. This is one kit I have decided not to meddle with, and will be using as is. I am not sure what each of the fabrics in the kit are but I believe the majority of them may be Paula Barnes designs for Marcus Brothers.
Once I pulled out the kit and saw that I had already done all the cutting, I sat down and stitched up a few blocks. It seemed like an appropriate project to work on over Memorial Weekend.
Hope you all had a nice weekend.
