F426 Red & White Feathered Star Fragment
each approx 15 x 15
$150 each (2 available)
Feathered Star fragments from a very early quilt - and in gorgeous red and white. A pattern which is always sought after, we have five single feathered star fragments saved from a much larger quilt. Each star is comprised of the same fabric: a small scale white doughnut-like circle on red. Entirely hand pieced they are also skillfully hand quilted in 1/2 inch cross hatch in a grid pattern for the stars and 1/2 inch diagonal cross hatching for the white joining blocks, all executed using very tiny stitches.
We chose a red and white striped fabric of the same date for the 1/4 inch applied binding which sets off each star beautifully. The backing is the same white as used on the front. These pieces are wonderful either alone (they are $175 each) or displayed as a grouping as we have shown them. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
