When I saw this quilt on auction, I thought this one is for me! I could not resist to such colors! Especially to the yellow of the sashings and the violet of the blocks. The person who did this quilt must have had an idea about complementary colors! I as well love the scrappy stars. This is an end 19th century quilt in a very good state, nicely hand quilted. I did some trials in the lounge to find the appropriate place to display it and finally decided that it will be fine on the dinning-room table. It enlightens the room! One of the things I love is to decorate the house with quilts and flowers. Here is a bunch of ranunculus freshly brought from the market. Such lovely and joyful colors!
Have a joyful day!

  9. OMG I love this quilt too. love the stars but the use of the chrome yellow for the sashing would be so bold for us today, but was used often in antique quilts. I have bought lots of chrome yellow over the years but still am hesitant about using it as sashing, I tend to use it in small pieces! YOUR antique quilt is just amazing and makes me want to push myself to give it a try! thanks
