More Antique Tumbling Block Star Quilt

A bit more of the Tumbling Block Star Quilt with the careful color placement and amazing fabrics! Just look at how she used almost exact matching fabrics in her sets of opposing star points -even in the solid center star.

Look at those two green prints - she had a large fabric collection to get such matching fabrics. OR perhaps the group making these in Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania shared/swapped fabrics.

And look how close the pinks and brown sets match!

Early Bethlehem or Mathematical Star Quilt

Such a striking early Bethlehem Star Quilt also called a Mathematical Star because of the drafting/piecing skill required to make this very difficult pattern. Part of my Quilt Masterpieces/Quilt Stars trunk show and also my Patterns Through Time lecture.
