Adding and Subtracting

“For life to be meaningful, add a little sacrifice, subtract anger and hatred, multiply friends and divide love for everyone to share.” unknown

This quilt started with the block “Shooting Star” first published in 1897  with the Ladies Art Co.



This block goes diagonally down the quilt.  On each side of this set of squares, a single element is added or subtracted from the original block.
