Liza kindly sent me a note with permission to use their Celestial Dreams image and Ibby filled in a brain blank, so I’m updating my post.
Having wandered over to Glorious Patchwork to see what’s new (oh, also bracelets), I was very excited to see one of my all-time fave quilt designs back in print — Susan Powell’s Celestial Dreams quilt.
This quilt was made by Ruth De Bord. Glorious, isn’t it?!
I remember seeing line drawings of this quilt in Threads magazine back in the day before the Internets brought us all good things. Back then the ads were for a block of the month program through Summer House. Several years later, by the time I saw the quilt made up, I HAD TO HAVE THE PATTERN and it was OUT OF PRINT. I stalked it. I bugged Gail Kessler at Ladyfingers Sewing Studio. By that time, the internet was a useful hunting tool, so I found the full pattern (which was slightly different than the BOM) and then found a kind soul who sold me her un-made BOM kit (ahem, still unfinished…cough, cough).
Anyways, it is one of my all-time favorite quilt designs and it’s available again.
What are some of your all-time favorite quilt designs?
