The Broken Star is a variation of one of the most classic quilt designs: the Lone Star. The Lone Star is known to have been in use by 1815, but we've not been able to discover when the Broken Star variation came into being. Then we saw appliquéd Tulips added to the Broken Star at an auction, and what a striking difference they make! Appliquéd flowers such as the Carolina Lily (which is very similar to the Tulip) were already in use by 1837.
Another design that was completely unknown to us, we're not certain when the Woven Ribbon came into existence. But it's not hard to imagine: think of a lattice top pie crust!
