The center triple feathered star block of the Austin Area Quilt Guild’s 2016 raffle quilt was designed by Marsha McCloskey as published in her book Feathered Star Quilt Blocks I. Other design elements were adapted from the book Flock of Feathered Stars by Carolyn Cullinan McCormick. The center blocks of the stars were designed in EQ7 software by Deborah Goltra. These designs have been used with the permission of the authors and designers.
This striking quilt was constructed by various members of the Austin Area Quilt Guild using traditional and paper piecing techniques. The quilt includes the block used as the Red, White and Stars show logo made by charter member Ann Byrd.Ann, who we lost in 2015, had the distinction of working on every raffle quilt since the inception of the AAQG. The quilt is constructed of 100% cotton prints and was expertly quilted by AAQG member Angela McCorkle, from Quilts With a Heart. 94” x 94”
