Turning Point

This quilt dates from my pre-machine quilting days. It's the last large quilt I quilted by hand. The basic design came from a stained glass window in a door at the Wentworth Mansion in Charleston SC.

It was assembled in two layers. The background was pieced together first. That odd "three legged" shape is the second layer and was fused over the intersections of the pieced background, hiding the seams. The fused edges are finished with satin stitching. Four of the shapes combine to create the edges of circular unit.
