Spring Fever

Spring Fever

This quilt uses just one traditional block called Evening Star (also known as Texas Star). However the clever placing of the colours and fabric creates a secondary pattern. Designed by Beth Ann Bruske and sewn by Lyn Oser Mann, it uses a collection of American fabrics from David Textiles. Here it looks very fresh and spring-like. However, it would also look quite dramatic and more like a sparkling night sky, if a selection of deep blues and purples were used with occasional flashes of lighter colours. Once all the patches are cut out, it is very fast to piece.
