I like most early antique quilts from the 1800s but there are a few special blocks that I have been studying and collecting and one of them is French Star. This quilt is a variation of that pattern as the center is one piece and not divided into 4 or 8 segments.
Lovely purple block.
Nice double pink- like the delicate prints.
