Today the quilt top I’m pulling from the quilt top cupboard is a LeMoyne Star pattern.
The quilt top is machine sewn and dates to the 1940′s-1960′s. It’s done scrappy style with each block different.
The blocks have a red background and the blocks are set with white sashing.
The blocks are around 13″. The sashing is 3″. The top measures around 61″x77″.
The top as is looks to me, like it should have a border?
This pattern has set in seams and can be difficult for some people to machine piece, but the maker of this quilt top did a very nice job on the piecing.
Some of the fabrics in this quilt remind me of the vintage sheets that are being recycled into quilts, but I think it’s more likely the fabrics came from clothing?
I don’t have any immediate plans to quilt this one.
