Day 21 - A Month of Antique Quilts - Seeing Stars

 Ready for another star quilt? I hope the answer is yes! Here's a close of one of the blocks with wonderful blues and a red equestrian novelty print in the center. Quintessential markers for dating quilts to the 1890s.  

And here is one of the pieced stars from the sashing. This is the scrappiest one with each of the eights points sewn in a different fabric.

The full fabulous quilt. Click on the photo to enlarge and see more details. I love how the large stars look like they are made from several different pattern due to color placement. Starley Quilt Collection.

  1. So interesting how just changing those two diamonds in each corner of the star produces a totally different look.


Thanks for visiting and commenting.
