Antique Princess Princes Feather Quilt

2 blocks from my antique princess or prince's feather quilt with oak reel center and basket borders. Starley antique quilt collection.

*History lesson - the alternate feathers were originally green and a strong Christmas green. But the dye was a two step (yellow and blue). Or perhaps the maker used one of the new synthetic dyes that turned out to be unreliable, unstable, and fugitive!


  1. The thought of appliqueing all those feathers just boggles my mind!

  2. So simple and yet so complicated at the same time!


Thanks for visiting and commenting.
