My fancy French Star quilt. A very uncommon pattern but I've been lucky to find a couple.
Here are 2 from my collection, Red/green quilt from Lancaster, PA c. 1870 and multi color top c. 1940. Part of my "Patterns through Time" trunk show showing a variety of quilt patterns and how they've changed over time.
The full quilt.
