Mayful's Star
4 x 4 quilt block

 

Mayful’s Star, is so named to honor Mayful Harris of Lake Charles, La., aunt of Kim Karaman, co-owner of Landrum Antiques and Furniture. 

 

According to Karaman, her aunt was a prolific quilter as long as she can remember.  This is a traditional star design with colors selected by Karaman.

 

Karaman and her husband Mike bought the three building antique mall in 2000.

 

Apparently each of the three buildings once housed its own unique businesses.  The left building was thought to be the site of a dinner theatre in the Eighties.  The middle building was a movie theatre in the Thirties and a roller rink in the Forties.  The right building was once a drug store with a soda fountain.
