March 9, 2009 A star of a different color

A couple of weeks ago I posted a quilt that was a 1930’s variation on a traditional pattern. So again today, a quilt we just found last week here in Berks County, PA. This time it’s a lone star, or Star of Bethlehem, in anything but traditional color and form.

This came from an estate where quilting was a family affair; there were two sons who had each made their own redwork quilt at the age of 16. Do you know any 16 year old boys making any quilts today??
Anyway, I love the color choices, and the way the star is framed. The quilt does boast an altogether 1930’s character in it’s geometric layout. Oh, and the back is a great color contrast…
