Linda's Antique Quilt

This antique quilt top was picked up by Linda in Yuma at an Antique store.  What a find. Linda wasn't sure of the age, but was thinking the fabrics looked like they came from the 1950s.  The star blocks were all hand pieced, with a machine used for the sashing.  If you know the name of the block, can you please let me know.

Now from the old to the new.  Linda had joined with a group of wonderful ladies to work on "One Block Wonders."  Here are a couple of the quilts as works in progress.

The first has it's blocks placed ready for stitching together.  The second is still waiting for a couple of blocks to be finished before the rearranging begins.
Thanks to the entire group for the invite over, the visit and of course, the carrot cake.
