Matching quilts in a custom size are destined for RV bunk beds!   Much more bright and cheerful than the stock covers that come with an travel trailer.  The title comes from the name of the pattern used to piece the quilt tops.  I am so motivated now to make a quilt for our 5th wheel!   Like I really need a new quilt but I would like to use some of the interior design colors so it will coordinate.  First, I need a pattern and second new fabrics, ohhh  that means shopping!

Fussy cut stars in the center of the blocks and cornerstones inspired the stars and swirls quilting.  I love how it shows up in the borders.   This quilt top went from nice to spectacular.

The label tells a heart breaking story of an original quilt that was stolen, but it doesn’t tell the story of how a loving son brought this reproduction quilt to completion.  First he found a set of piecers who searched for matching fabrics to the original based on photographs and added identical pieced pinwheels to Lesley’s extra orphan blocks. Second, he had the newly pieced pinwheel top brought to Ideal Stitches so that I could duplicate the quilting.  When Madison came to visit her grandmother, they both came to Ideal Stitches to pick up the quilt.  It touched my heart to be part of the heartwarming reconciliation.

This is the first of two in this set of little boy quilts!  The novelty fire and rescue fabrics pair up with a fantastic fire engine, helmet and hydrant pattern that will excite a young lad!  The backing is a blue flannel and I know this will be a well loved quilt!
