Sets for the Threads of Memory BOM

#1 Salem Star by Debra R.
Threads of Memory
I know you've all been busy, saving your setting stitching for 2015.
We are going to see some spectacular samplers over the next few months.

Debra has been working with a bird theme, an apt symbolic image
for a quilt about slavery and freedom.

# 8 Jackson Star


#11

We can use this post to collect instructions for the sets. I'll put a link over in the sidebar so we have URLs for all of them.

Chords of Memory by Jean Stanclift
from a design by Barbara Brackman

When Jean and I did this quilt top with stars in the sashing several years ago for a C&T pattern we called it Chords of Memory.

I really like the blue setting, with the bird in the middle, nice combination.

I'm smitten with the last quilt, Terry's, with the extra stars as frames for the blocks. Lovely!
