Evening Star


This lovely quilt is designed to be our short-tem Opportunity Quilt to be given away at our 2022 Quilt Show in October.


The pattern is from a Missouri Star leaflet titled Binding Tool Star, which came with the binding tool.  The fabric was donated by Sally Fried and Karren Lusignan.  The top was pieced by Karren Lusignan, quilted by Tom Reinke, and bound by Lynn Zacharias.  


When the quilt was revealed at the May guild meeting, members suggested a variety of names for the quilt, giving Karren the final say in the quilt’s name.


The quilt measures 76” by 76”’
