Edda's Red Selvage Star Quilt

I'm so excited about Edda's new selvage quilt! Isn't this a beauty? I love how the star sparkles on the delicious red background. This and several more of her quilts will be in the Cal-Co show this weekend in the Battle Creek, MI area. Selvage newbies are in for a nice surprise!

This quilt measures 34" x 34." She had all the reds in her stash and she used leftover batting, so this quilt didn't cost her a cent! Her inspiration was the "Twilight Star" quilt in my book, "Quilts from the Selvage Edge." (It really isn't hard, especially for such a cool-looking quilt.)

Fantastic! It occured to me that it was very appropriate for today, since tonight at sundown the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah begins, and what a lovely star!!!
You made my day even more special!!
