Stars on Display

Frame star blocks with a neutral background and black sashing strips. The scrappy accordion border and a standout red paisley print add color without overwhelming the real stars of the quilt—the machine quilting and star blocks. Fabrics are from the Vintage Farmhouse collection by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass & Co. Quilting design in block centers is from Wasatch Quilting. Other quilting designs are courtesy of Handi Quilter.
