Village Glacier Star is 90 inches square, made in blue, white, and gray with bright accent colors. The effect is like looking at a piece of the night sky through an illuminated dome.
The quilt top was designed by Judy Niemeyer Quilting and Quiltworx.com. The digital quilting designs were made by Peak to Prairie Quilting. Barb Jolley machine quilted it using Quilters Dream request cotton batting and Quilters Dream Wool Batting.
Members of Village Quilter made this quilt. Madge Pierce, Barb Jolley, Kearstie Grenier, Barbara Peterson and Andrea Krier selected the pattern and the palette using the Quiltster program under guidance from Barbara Peterson. Jane Reents donated the pattern and papers. Varios members paper-pieced the flying geese units and assembled it under the direction of Barbara Peterson. Andrea Krier volunteered her home for the many sewing sessions necessary to complete it. Barb Jolley added the piped binding and five people hand-sewed the binding.
