Stargazer by Rosalind Newell

The featured quilt of the week in the November 21, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt is called Stargazer, and it was created by Rosalind Newell. To be precise, this is actually Stargazer #5 because each quilt Rosalind has  made for a child at the Carrie Steele Pitts Home for Children has been named Stargazer, and this year’s quilt  is the fifth special gift she has made. It was presented Saturday when the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild gathered at the home to present the quilts.

Rosalind understands the importance of dreams, and this quilt imparts the message that no goal is unobtainable. She wants the young man who receives this quilt to know that the entire universe is his to capture. She used celestial fabrics to carry out her theme — stars, moons, suns and even an astronaut.

Rosalind says, “my wish is that every child know the warmth and safety of a loving home where he is given all of the tools to succeed in life. I pray that my quilt is just a part of that rewarding future.”
