Antique Quilt Trapunto Stars -A month of Treasures

Carpenter Star variation with AMAZING trapunto quilt from the 1840s. Part of the Starley Antique Collection - Antique Stars trunk show.

It has a variety of quilting designs including this unusual 5 pointed "Texas" star set in a trapunto wreath.

and these wonderful pineapples in the borders

And the full quilt. By the way, the dense stuffed quilting makes for quite a heavy quilt.

  1. I marvel at what quilters of the past accomplished without all of the tools and tricks we have today. This is a gorgeous old piece!
