Materials/Techniques: The star and inner border are fashioned from a graduated dyed piece of fabric and the border and the appliquéd "ripples" around the star are batik. Echo quilting emphasizes the ripple effect.

Artist's Statement: Six pointed stars work out very well for the dimension criteria of these little quilts.

Dedication: I made my mother a twin sized quilt of pieced stars with arcs around the points and she had it on her bed at the assisted living home she was at for a while. She never really understood that it was all right to have her own quilt there since she was in the early stages of dementia then. The pattern reminds me of her quilt, so it is dedicated to the memory of her.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $79.77 for the AAQI.
