Stars with Applique Quilt: Circa Pennsylvania Old Quilts, Antique Quilts, Vintage Quilts, Lone Star Quilt, Star Quilts, Quilting Projects, Quilting Designs, Quilt Design, American Quilt

Stars with Applique Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania - Dense patterning makes this combination of Star of Bethlehem; Oakleaf; Variable Star and Hourglass a real knock-out. Graduated sizes of each frame add to the drama of the large central star. Colors and fabrics have mellowed with washing. Likely a unique combination of patterns. Measures 82" x 99"; circa 1870. Pennsylvania origin. (Courtesy, Stella Rubin)
