Do you wonder like I do, why some of the blocks seem to be turned the wrong way? And did the maker get tired of applique so she put in a few basket blocks instead? Pot Of Flowers. 1870 Pennsylvania. Photo by SurrendrDorothy, via Flickr
AWESOME 1800's Antique SUNBURST Quilt, Etsy, TextilesandOldThings,
Stars with Applique Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania Dense patterning makes this combination of Star of Bethlehem; Oakleaf; Variable Star and Hourglass a real knock-out. Graduated sizes of each frame add to the drama of the large central star. Colors and fabrics have mellowed with washing. Likely a unique combination of patterns. Measures 82" x 99"; circa 1870. Pennsylvania origin.
