Sower of the Word - "Star" Quiltlet

Birth of a Star is a small (48” square) embroidered quilt or banner. You will be interested to hear the story of how it came into being and learn the meaning behind each shape, color of thread, and type of stitch used. Even more fascinating are the biblical lessons hidden in the quilting stitches themselves.

This work won 2nd prize in the Embroidery Category at the 1985 Biennial Exhibit of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America, Philadelphia Chapter.
