15 and counting - Novelty Ships Wheel

Okay - they really can't all be my favorites? Or can they???
Please be sure to click on the individual photos to see the details and all the amazing novelty or conversation prints.

The block pattern is "Ship's Wheel"
The quilt is circa 1890**, these steel engraving novelty prints are mostly from the 1880s.
**The top is c. 1890 but was minimally quilted a few years ago with a polyester batting. I've since unquilted it and removed the poofy poly but left the backing to protect the seams.

More wonderful fabrics

And even more


  1. These are all incredible and after making six pointed stars I have a new respect for :not loosing the point and keeping them sharp."

  2. Oh, I LOVE this quilt! Surprised me that the quilting wasn't more dense in the background and sashing, but I love the piecing!
