Rose's Star Quilt - Over 30 year old quilt top that was started by Rose's grandmother, finished by Roses mother and Rose gave it to me to quilt. This quilt has been photographed and has shown up in travel guides, newpapers and magazines. It seems to have a life of it's own. I loved quilting it and I didn't want to give it back. When you stand back and look at, it pulsates.
