Samuel’s Quilt


My brother Samuel is a Marine Reserve. This Star Quilt has been in the works for quite a while because de is also the only sibling that I have (out of 5) that I haven’t yet made a quilt! I heard that he was going to be having a little promotion soon, so I decided to get in gear and finish his quilt! I used solids, in Marine-y colors that he likes. I don’t know why, he is red/green color deficient, aka-color blind, and he has a harder time with greens. I wonder how he will see this quilt… Hope he likes it! The pattern is called “No Diamonds in the Sky.” Here is a link to the quilt pattern if you are interested! If you are wanting to make a star quilt, there are so many options out there, but I’ve made this one three times! The only think I would change about the pattern is to add in some trimming instructions. Once you finish all the blocks, they aren’t perfectly even, and definitely can use a trim, so instructions about what size to trim would be helpful!

Quilting by Tricia Clayton! She is always quick and does such a great job! If you are near Tucson, Arizona, I totally recommend her :)

While this quilt was being quilted, Samuel was in a nasty motorcycle wreck. Once I learned that he was going to be okay, I gathered my girls up to me and squeezed them tight. Then I bound this with even more love than usual. It ended up being a get well soon present, and I’m happy to say that he is better now!
