T is for Trapunto - Antique Quilt

T is for Trapunto (stuffed hand quilting) on this treasure from the Starley Collection. Part of the Antique Stars trunk show. Look at the star quilting in the alternating blocks between the pieced stars. Circa 1840s.

And this is the border quilting - got to LOVE that quilted pineapple!

The star block with trapunto showing in the corners.

The full quilt.


  1. stunning quilting ~ I can't imagine how much time would have gone into creating such a quilt.
