Rainbow of Stars – PTQG Raffle Quilt 2018

Rainbow of Stars is a 92” x 104”quilt machine pieced by Terry Sue Blanchette and machine quilted by Marcia O’Donnell of Heart ‘n Home Quilting. It is from the pattern “Sparkle” by Michelle Renee Hiatt at www.sewonthego.net using tools from Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design.

We are also excited to welcome Michelle as an instructor for Maine Quilts 2018.

Michelle is a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor. Terry Sue, a fellow Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor, was honored to be part of the testing team for Sparkle prior to the pattern’s release in the fall of 2017. A fat quarter bundle from Patrick Lose Studios called Basically Patrick Quilters Rainbow Bundle of Fun was used to create stars from 28 bright colored fabrics. There are 28 large stars surrounded by 56 smaller stars.
