day 18 Christmas French Stars

The French Star block is one of my all time favorites. Especially this beauty in red and green and gold .


The quilt was found in Pennsylvania. Thanks Sharon Stark of Sharon's Quits and RickRack.


Here's a c. 1940's version of that same pattern. This top has wonderful, vibrant colors.

And the full quilt shows the elegant applique swag border - a throwback to the 1850s

Here is  a closer look along with the earlier French Star.

The pattern requires some careful curved piecing and Y seams and insets

  3. Both are beautiful, but IMHO you cannot beat the red/green/yellow combo!
