Star of Bethlehem Hand Pieced and Appliqued Quilt Top
This spectacular quilt top features a large center Star of Bethlehem, also known as Star of the East, Blazing Star or Rising Star. It is all hand pieced. It's surrounded by muslin blocks with hand pieced and appliqued smaller star patterns and a three piece motif that looks like a folded paper hat or boat shape, all are hand appliqued. Reminds me of a starry night sky.
Colorful fabrics with a red center make up the big star. Measures 71" x 86".
Hand washed and carefully line dried, it's clean and ready to back, add batting and finish quilt or tie into a comfort. Or just display as is.
The colors and fabrics are strong. There are no stains or holes. There is one block of muslin that has a square of very pale cream, with clean straight edges which I believe was printed on, like a label on a feedsack. See last pic.
