After my Mom passed in 1998, I found several beautiful crocheted items she had been working on. Among them were five 10 x 10 inch crocheted squares. For years I tried to figure out how to use these in a way to honor her memory. I was not a quilter at that time, but I did do a lot of sewing. So in late 2018 I decided I could use them on a quilt. It took me about six months to design the quilt after I figured out I could make them form a star by placing them together in a certain way. This quilt took me another year to make after I got the design. I made it with polyester crepe back satin (white) and polyester dupioni (2 blues). I added machine embroidery in the borders, and the center star is also machine embroidered. I painted the flowers and birds around the white part after I quilted them. Then I finished it off with a row of pearls along the binding, hot fix pearls throughout the quilt, and sewed on five pearls in the centers of the crocheted squares that came from one of her broken necklaces. Her name was Zephana Compton Bivens and she was a master craftsman in woodworking, handwork, and sewing. This picture shows a bend in the right that is not really there. I will replace the picture when I can.
