Baby Noah Celestial Quilt

North Carolina quilter Donna Williams (on left) displays the quilt she made for baby Noah Orion. Noah is being held by his grandmother, Sheila Caldwell an educator, activist and writer from historic Highland Beach on the western shore of Maryland. Orion is a prominent constellation on the celestial equator and is visible throughout the world. It is said to be the most recognizable constellation in the night sky. Orion is often referred to as the hunter. The three stars in the center of the quilt on the horizontal bands refer to the hunters belt, Williams said. The four stars in each of the corners represent the outline of the hunters body.
