Three Great Antique Quilts
made of "strips."
Strips of fabric, of random widths,
were sewn onto squares of cotton.
Then four of these squares were sewn together,
creating the illusion of "X"'s
in this "String Quilt," made circa 1900.
This fabulous circa 1890 "Kaleidoscope Star,"
as the former owner called it,
combines Strip Piecing (in the Four Point Stars)
and Crazy Quilt (random shaped pieces)
Check out this wild, unique interpretation of 1880s Log Cabin!
Note the Log Cabin blocks set within Strip Diamonds,
and the Strip Piecing in the centers of each Cabin.
