Thanks to Fran

This is my Christmas Disappearing 9 Patch which I finished last December just in time to snuggle under at Christmas.

Thanks to Fran, one of my AOL Quilt Chat Room friends, we think the name of Sylvia's top shown in the previous post might be Feathered Star.

It is close to the block shown in Barbara Brackman's book Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, #3389.

Fran also referred to Old Chelsea Station Needlework Service. This is probably the pattern service found in the newspapers back in the 30s, 40s and 50s.

The quilt to the right of mine in picture features a pillow topper that Judy has sewn into the top binding. She said she likes to hide the pillows under the flap. Great idea. She used snowmen fabric with a Christmas beige fabric.
