Americana Lone Star

The Antique Americana collection from RJR Fabrics steals the show in this Lone Star wall hanging. A two-color collage of vintage postcards provides an unexpected background in the LeMoyne Star blocks and setting units. Abrupt changes from light prints to dark prints make this small Lone Star radiate. A trio of borders visually contains the star.
