Star of France, collection of the American Museum of Folk Art
If you had the old editions of my Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns you could find
the name of this quilt pattern designed by Hubert VerMerhren about 1933.
#4000 Star of France
But it wasn't a very pretty drawing. These patterns designed
to fill the whole quilt are neither easy to make nor easy to draw.
VerMehren was good at the drafting.
However, my page proof of the third edition show a much
better drawing (Thanks, Ann & Jenny!)
In fact all the Whole-Top designs are nicely drafted now.
In color and outline.
Many of the patterns on the pages at the end of the book are
VerMehren designs from his DesMoines studio. He called
this one the D.A.R. Quilt #4002
4014 The Sunburst Quilt
4015 The Giant Dahlia
The pattern for the Giant Dahlia appeared in
newspapers in 1934 & 1935
All good to know.
80" x 80"
In case you should come across one of these at a yard
