This lovely set of 12 vintage star flower quilt blocks was donated to the Lubbock Chapter Project Linus by a "blanketeer" as a fundraiser.


Measuring approximately 11" across at the largest point, these hand-pieced blocks may have been the start of a signature, autograph, or friendship quilt, since one of the flowers has a name embroidered in its center.


The flowers, each with 6 points and a hexagon muslin center are made from very unique vintage prints. Some may even be from feed sacks.

There are many online sites with information about the heritage of quilting in America. Some are excellent, containing well-researched scholarly information, such as The International Quilt Study and Museum at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.

Others, such as Block Central's Quilt Directory contain links to many fine sites that pertain not only to the history of quilts, but to other elements of quilting as well.
