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.
