PRINT of “A Star Among Stars”
Of all the over 300 quilts I have made, A Star Among Stars tested my discipline and perseverance the most. It is my interpretation of Willyne Hammerstein’s LaPassacaglia quilt pattern. It is entirely pieced by hand using English paper piecing and probably has over 3000 pieces. While I did not enjoy piecing this quilt, I do love the way it turned out. It is destined to be a star in my collection of red and white quilts.
After joining the blocks and appliquéing them to a white starry, metallic background, to continue the theme of the quilt, I appliquéd angels and stars to the background . I also added red star buttons for dimension and interest. I think the angels make the quilt.
“A Star Among Stars” was machine quilted by Maxine Moore using a swirly star pattern. As you can see, stars are everywhere in this quilt.
The back of the quilt is a traditional red and white print. There is a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display and a label that documents the quilt.
“A Star Among Stars” is part of the traveling exhibit of O.V. Brantley’s solo exhibit of her red and white quilts entitled “Long Time Coming: A Retrospective of O.V. Brantley’s Red and White Quilts”. The exhibit premiered in Atlanta, GA November 19, 2022 and will be featured at the 2023 International Quilt Festival in Houston November 2-5. The original quilt is currently not for sale.
The unframed archival pigment print (AKA Giclee) is printed on 100% cotton rag museum quality paper and framed with a white mat. Giclee prints are the state-of-the-art museum quality print medium today. The size of the matted print is 20 X 24 inches.
I signed the print on the front. It will be shipped with care and delivered in a clear plastic bag ready for framing.
