Maggie's birthday quilt

Maggie's quilt
I received a super birthday quilt from Maggie using very pretty fabrics and in a complicated mosaic paper pieced pentagram design. Note the pointyness of the triangles and the long diamonds different from those in 60 degree patchwork. It was custom quilted on her long arm machine. All my quilts have been expressive of the donors which is what I wanted. This one combines the technical longarm machine work attuned to the delicate complexity of hand sewn  patches in stunning fabric combinations all set off by the black and white binding.
