Double Friendship Star block designed by Marcia Cohn of The Quilter’s Cache. Used with written permission.Materials/Techniques:
Hand quilted with embroidery flosses.Artist's Statement:
The fourth PQ that I made was named “Star Light, Star Bright” (#431). Now, Star Light, Star Bright II showcases another of Marcia’s star quilt block patterns. I love this starry quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
“Silently, one by one,
in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars,
the forget-me-nots of the angels.”
And this quote by an unknown author fits so well for those who are living through a journey with Alzheimer’s: “When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness; instead keep your head up high and gaze at the stars, for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal”. Julie SeftonDedication:
For my mom and her journey (1916-2005). “Stars are the daisies that begem the blue fields of the sky.” (D.M. Moir).
