Barbara's UFO-5: P.E.O. Theme Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I believe she did not complete the project because she was unable to decide on a suitable pattern for the quilt. Indeed, I had difficulty doing so myself, but succeeded with the use of computer software. Barbara frequently used the Fibonacci Sequence in her artistic designs, and I used that sequencing principle to good advantage here. The selection of quilting patterns is based on P.E.O. symbols: notably, the Marguerite flower and the five-point star. Notice that many of Barbara's selection of traditional block patterns are stars. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project is not intended to be duplicated by other quilters, but I would highly recommend finishing the UFOs of deceased spouses as therapy for wounded souls.
