Here’s Clara’s Diamond Star

67 x 75 inches
circa 1960

Clara’s Diamond Star has 16 blocks — 7 lavender, yellow and red diamond star blocks, 5 lavender, white and red star blocks. Orange and lavender sashing divide the blocks. The quilt has a lavender inner border and a red outer border that forms fold-over binding. The red border is pieced with different fabric in one corner as if she ran out of the red border fabric. The quilt is hand quilted with white thread in a grid pattern.
