Mixon quilt author Deborah Burkett displays antique quilts that are part of the collection she has amassed over the years. The “Hands All Around” and “Star Everlasting” quilts date back to the mid-1800s, using material dyed in “turkey red,” yellow and green. The green dye, however, “was not stable, so it faded to the gold we see today,” Burkett noted.
