Quilting In NC

My Mom had a project she had come to a halt on when she couldn't make heads or tails of the directions she had been given.
A member of her guild had shown a beautiful quilt which Mom had fallen in love with and was generous enough to share her pattern. However, the directions for making the long legged stars was a method that was new to Mom...one done by quilter Mary Hickey and she asked me to help out. I took a look at the project and loved it but the method for making the star points required a ruler, Birangle, which Mom didn't own and I had no experience with. After being stumped myself and even a call to my friend C who can solve ANY quilt problem, I finally started looking online for a solution and found the exact block in a 12 inch size on Quilter's Cache...one of my favorite block sites!
As you can see from the picture we were successful in completing the top and even got some assistance from my Grniece Z!
It's a beautiful quilt top and can't wait to see how Mom quilts it.
