MIssouri Star Pattern in blue
This is a recue quilt. Donated items in a box to our Quilt group were sorted and this item a Missouri Star was very sad looking. It had a button in the center & was gathered up in pleats & was soiled. Think the maker wanted to do a pillow . It had batting attached but was all in a wad and no backside. Soon I found a few more unsewn pieces in the box. So I gathered tossed item from the trash and took it home, I carefully took it apart and washed her. Yup good as new. Later the next week I found in our cupboard materials that matched. So I drew the pattern pieces from the finished item and added 1/4 inch seam and made another Missouri Star. Not enough Material to do more as I needed some for the back side too. Decided a lap or couch size would work though. This is how she came out. Giving her to a friend in the north to keep her warm, blue is her favorite color.
