RED TREES ANTIQUE QUILT

RED TREES ANTIQUE QUILT
   

 



A novel formation of the favorite Trees pattern pieced block. This example places the 4 tree tops so that they point inward to a center spot so the pattern reads like a star. I have one other example that is pieced of a red/black buffalo check fabric. This one might be southern given its format of pieced corners and triple frames around each block. In lovely condition, has been laundered but it still fresh. Its quilting adds great texture
