When you look at it a second time, you realize that within each star "wedge", the color combinations are not unusual at all: red and green (that all time favorite), blue and pink, red and pink, yellow and red, blue and tan or beige. Its that each wedge is colored differently from the next that gives this quilt its wonderful uniqueness.
Most Lone Star quilts have the colors changing in a sort of circular motion. Not here!
The beautiful setting fabric and bright red and yellow sawtooth border perfectly complete this top.
Here are some close-ups of the wonderful fabrics used in this quilt top. Two different greens and the yellow in the star and the sawtooth are not the same .
This is the other side of the quilt top, its the only star diamond that I found pieced! Look at her tiny stitches and how she tore the setting square fabric on that side.
BTW, the border fabric looks new and unwashed and again being frugal, she left the selvage on one side to make up the width needed. I wonder why she never quilted it...
