O Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy Perfect Light
I came across this antique silk quilt a few years ago. It is entirely hand stitched with tiny black stitches. I have not seen this pattern (on the order of the pineapple pattern) but each block looks like a star of Davit so I cut it apart and made them into Christmas ornaments. They measure about 12 inches across. I hand stitched antique tinsel garland around the edge.
Because the silk is so fragile I had to make a
large opening in the back to turn it. This I closed
with vintage mother of pearl buttons. Then I
stiffened the back to keep the shape .
