Antique Lost Ship Quilt (Lady of the Lake)

Got to love limey green and cheddar orange and lots of half square triangles. Great colors. Starley Collection.

Full quilt

It has some great quilting in the borders

Unfortunately, many of the Turkey reds have damage. Have you heard the term "popping?" This is what it looks like. Like someone took tiny scissors or a hold punch and cut circles out of the red fabrics. It is likely the design had a motif that was outlined in black and the black is corrosive, caustic and eats away at the red.


  1. Oh how I love this quilt. Cheddar and lime green, yum!

  2. This is a beauty, Sandra. Too bad about the popping.
