My youngest daughter was born in Korea and came to me via a plane when she was six months old. Easiest delivery I ever had!
I wanted to make her a quilt to reflect her heritage as Emily had the Irish quilt. I couldn't find a pattern with Korea in the name so I chose Starry Night and made it in Asian fabrics of red, white and blue to reflect her country of birth and adoption. I hand quilted moons in different phases and stars to reflect her journey here and called it Through the Night Stars because of her lengthy plane ride.
She loved it as a toddler, I could tell because she jumped on it, spilled on it and threw up on it a couple of times. It is not as bright as the picture but is still a well loved quilt.
Maybe I just wanted children to have excuses to make quilts?
