FOUR POINT STAR or ROCKY ROAD ANTIQUE QUILT, silk


 
FOUR POINT STAR or ROCKY ROAD ANTIQUE QUILT, silk

Dynamic configuration incorporates crazy quilt-type piecing in a traditional geometric pattern called variously FOUR POINT, "KITE" or ROCKY ROAD TO KANSAS, among other titles. The larger scale of the nine stars permits the inclusion of many small bits of Victorian silk. Unlike a crazy quilt there is no embroidery to feminize the geometry, but the Victorian quiltmaker could not resist the flourish of a red ruffle. Striking with the multicolor silk bits against black. Excellent condition, a few minor inevitable silk breaks| but nothing to interfere with the enjoyment of the quilt.
