Cathy made the Star and Plume quilt after she wrote a song of the same name for her third quilting CD, A Quilter's World

It tells a happy-ending story about our favorite quilt gal, Sunbonnet Sue, who finds true love after some dicey moments with an intruder, using 46 quilt block names to tell the story. Thanks to Barbara Brackman for her wonderful "Encyclopedia of Quilt Block Patterns", where Cathy not only got the names of the blocks, but also what they look like. If you have "A Quilter's World," you can "follow the bouncing ball" and read along with the quilt as the song is playing!

Machine and hand pieced and appliquéd, machine quilted.
Each block is 9."
Finished in her car on her way to Texas, January 2005.

You can learn more about Cathy in Episode 1204: Songs, Stories, and Buttons.
