Stella-smStella’s Star is a 4-color, 5-fabric quilt in an on-point setting. It measures approximately 70 x 70 inches. This quilt uses two different 10 inch blocks. When they are set on point it is hard to tell where one block ends and the other begins. I like that it has almost a plaid look to it.

This design uses the Inklingo Half Square Triangle [HST] 00B and Inklingo Quarter Square Triangle [QST] 00B Collections. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Toscana by Northcott.

Stella F Williamson is my great aunt. She was born in July 1872 in Rochester, New York. I don’t know much about her other than she is the oldest child of Georgianna (DeLong) Williamson, was married twice and had a least one child. I like the name Stella so that is why I chose to feature her.
