Diamond Star Design
We haven't had any success in tracking the history of this quilt. Use of the star motif to in quilt-making dates back to the mid-seventeenth century, at least. This particular use of the star takes the Broken Star variation and takes it a step further. Instead of taking the blank spaces and quilting a design inside of them, more diamonds or half-diamonds are created. It makes a great play of dark and light colors!
