Pam Buda's newest BOM quilt features Diamond Star blocks, and it celebrates the mid-nineteenth century when red and green quilts were the rage. Quilts of the era were often made with a muslin background and solid prints, but many were pieced using a variety of calicos. Pam designed a soft neutral print to echo the muslin background color, but with a classic feel that moves through the Christmas holiday season and beyond. A bonus design feature: four large, light areas between the pieced blocks invite heirloom quality quilting. The 9-month program begins March 2020 and highlights the fictional story of Rachel, who creates this very special quilt in celebration of her parents' 20th anniversary in 1855. Pam's coordinating 108" backing is also available.
