Favorite Capitol Quilts 2011

 Remember the Just One Star program? A finished quilt was prominently displayed in the Capitol Quilt show. It was stunning. As of last week, quilters have sent in over 12,000 stars for this program. Read about it here.

 I fell in love with this simple, scrappy quilt.

I especially liked the enlarged blocks on the back.

If you want to try making a large block like the one above, Mary's Carpenter Star pattern may be helpful since she has already done the math and gives the cutting directions.

  4. wow -- I hadn't read anything on the just one stars project until you posted about it. A wonderful quilt was made from the stars. Quilters are amazing people -- 12,000 stars will make a LOT of quilts. I'd guess they didn't expect such an outpouring. B.
