Stephanie's Sampler

Day 3 of the quilt challenge. We now move to New Delhi, India where I was a member of another lovely quilting group. By this time I was teaching beginners and the blocks in the centre of this quilt were my class samples. I made it for my daughter, Stephanie - started in about 1995 and finished in 1999. I must have dallied a bit too long in giving it to her as she was 10 by then and getting a bit too old for the Beatrix Potter animals in the centre of each star! It was hand quilted using local cotton fabrics made for export and cost less than a 100 rupees a metre, which if I recall rightly was under a UK pound! She still loves it and complains that it was yet another quilt left in storage in England.
