GORGEOUS Vintage 1870's Stars Antique Quilt BEAUTIFUL FABRICS & SWAG BORDER! This WONDERFUL cotton 1870's stars quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, with an unusual reverse color design and nice hand appliqued swag border. It measures 72" X 72" and is in excellent condition, with the occasional tiny, faint age spot (hard to find) and no wear. The quilt feels strong and sturdy overall. There are straight line and grid designs quilted throughout at an even 8-9 stitches to the inch with faint pencil marks still visible in places.
The back is an elegant early brown fabric, the hand stitched binding is the same early double pink used in the background, and the batting is thin.
