Airing of the Quilts 3
I would guess that the orangy-tan stars were originally bright red, too. I think they have faded with time. I do not know the name of the block pattern.
I think this is the oldest quilt I have. It is in really poor shape, but I love the designs and colors of those old fabrics. Such rich designs were created from just a few elements.
This is block number 1845 in 5500 Quilt Block Designs by Maggie Malone. Names for this block are Barrister’s Block, Lawyer’s Puzzle, and Saw, but in the block she shows, the small triangles are a different color than the large triangle.
