Day 29 - A Magical Month of Antique Quilts from the Starley Quilt Collection

 Another favorite block of mine is the Tumbling Block Star. I shared another Tumbling Block Star a couple of days ago with a center block of solid fabrics. This top doesn't have that feature but it is still pretty awesome. Part of my Patterns Through Time trunk show.

The maker made horizontal rows of color by carefully arranging her fabric placement, like the pink, blue and red fabrics below.

The quilt top is circa 1885/90 and from Pennsylvania. Lots of wonderful novelty prints and cheater fabrics. Be sure to click on the photo to enlarge and enjoy the details of the fabrics.


  1. I've really enjoyed your trunk show this month. A beautiful collection, thanks so much for sharing.

  2. I've enjoyed your quilt show very much.

    When I click on the photos above, they don't enlarge though? I've noticed the same on other blogs the last couple of weeks - photos used to enlarge, but don't any more.


Thanks for visiting and commenting.
