Amish Star with bird's eye
Quiltboxes wood art pieces feature traditional quilt block designs executed in beautiful hardwood marquetry. I create these heirloom quality boxes in my studio in the capital region of Upstate New York.
This is the vintage quilt pattern Amish Star. When wrapped around this box, you really see the extra star emerging at the corners. On a shelf or table, you can see the pattern from any direction.
This 5" cube with a lift-off lid is veneered with Birdseye Maple and Carpathian Elm Burl. The inside is Cherry with a black velvet interior bottom, and black felt on the outside base.
A small registration “button” orients the top so the grain and figure in the wood stay aligned when you close the box.
