She lived in the Tidewater area of Virginia in the early 1970s. While shopping for Blue Flow china at local antique stores, Bette started to pick up quilt tops and blocks. Always fond of pink, she chose pieces that contained classic double pinks but were damaged or poorly sewn. Bette took everything apart, saving the good parts.
Bette's quilt, entirely hand pieced and hand quilted, contains 432 mostly pink star blocks with a sprinkle of other colors: lights, taupe/tan, warm browns and several Indigos.
The background fabric is a 1980s broadcloth, all the stars are antique fabrics, 1840-end of the century.
My favorite pieces are the delicate trumpet flower mill engraving along with a classic 1850-1900 pad and cover double pink.
