  • Vibrant fall colored leaves are framed by two hunter green borders.  The leaves are set at different angles in the blocks which gives them visual movement. Well-chosen quilting patterns and excellent stitching.
  • A pleasing  combination of solid fabric stars and  plaid logs.  It would be a comfortable throw or an interesting wall-hanger
  • A striking quilt comprised of 128 eight-pointed stars in a mix of jewel-tone fabrics on an off-white background. The zig-zag border nicely complements the star design.
  • A variation of the Log Cabin pattern that features pieced stars  floating  amidst the darker half of the log cabin blocks.  The overall look is balanced and appealing due to the complementary placement of earth-tone and jewel colored fabrics.
  • A classic pattern that follows the common procedure where the stars are the primary visual focus on a white background.  Beautiful shade of blue and excellent quilting.
  • This striking version of the Log Cabin is looking for a king-size bed. One-inch red and white strips alternate to create a dynamic visual  image.  Very appealing, too, are the close quilting lines that produce a lovely tactile surface.
  • Mid-western Amish quilt-makers used a lot of black in their pre-1940 quilts.  This quilt is a good example of that---black baskets that complement the bright, colorful solids of the "flowers."  The shade of blue as the background fabric was an excellent choice. Also, the outer black border nicely frames the beautiful interior. This quilt would be serve equally well as a wall-hanging as well as a bed cover.
  • Crisp and dramatic, this Variable Star variation is very appealing in red and white and would look good in either a traditional or more contemporary setting.  The 2 1/2" inner borders nicely frame the field of star blocks. Excellent quilting.
  • In most quilts like this one the color is in the stars, not the background.  Here we see an example of the reverse,  with a lovely shade of blue as the background  and white fabric for the stars.  Excellent stitching with well-chosen  quilting patterns
  • The placement of color makes this a particularly interesting and appealing quilt---mostly off-white, a relatively small amount  of red, just a little accent green---  but so effective.  This could be a special holiday quilt but would be attractive any time of the year. **the darkness on the lower right corner is due to a problem in the photo-taking
  • Striking pattern in jewel-tone prints and solids that is comprised of just squares and triangles.
  • Dramatic red and white with lovely quilting. A popular traditional quilt pattern.
