Little Sister Quilt progress

I have been doing a little bit on the Little Sister quilt between other projects.  So far the centee is finished, 8 of the 16 4" stars and 2 of the 4 corner flower blocks.  The side applique is completed, and now I have to think about the border.  I have drawn the feathers, but just need to think about the placement.  It is a bit hard to get a full picture of the quilt as my house is so cluttered and it is a big quilt.  Don;t know how I will be when it is all finished and I am ready to wash and block.  Might have to borrow someone elses house!

None of the stars or corners are sewn in place, I have just placed them where they will be in order to get an idea of the final result.

I have been in touch with the Smithsonian Museum who own the original quilt, with a view to creating the pattern once I have finished.  I have not heard anything back from them, so don;t hold your breath if you are thinking of getting a copy for yourself.   My plan is to have it all completed for the Adelaide Quilt show in November this year.  I need deadlines, or it will just languish.


  1. Wendy, it is spectacular! I hope you can get permission from the Smithsonian to produce a pattern. I am sure you will earn a ribbon for this beauty at Adelaide.

  2. Your top is lovely. I hope you do get it done by your deadline. I agree they do help.

  3. Wow! The quilt is amazing and you have made a lot of progress.I hope you hear back soon from the Smithsonian.
