Day 28 - A Magical Month of Antique Quilts from the Starley Quilt Collection

 Another very holiday season quilt is this applique Coxcomb and Berries antique quilt, circa 1850, Starley Quilt Collection. 9 blocks straight set to create a secondary design where 4 blocks meet - it repeats the red X in the center of the individual blocks.

Unusual red and green circles create a frame or border around the blocks that are anchored by 4 lovely applique vases or baskets of flowers and more berries!

A close-up of the red and green berries - someone liked appliqueing circles! The green would have been a darker, more forest green but I do like the limey color it has now.


  1. What a unique quilt design. Fascinating!

  2. I have been enjoying your posts of your quilt collection all month! thanks so much! Happy New Year!
