Vintage 20's Blue & White Antique Quilt AMAZING STAR KALEIDOSCOPE DESIGN! This OUTSTANDING cotton 1910's/1920's blue and white stars quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, with a very unusual hourglass/kaleidoscope-like design. It measures a generous 78" X 80" and is in excellent condition, with a couple of tiny, faint spots and no wear. The quilt feels strong and sturdy overall.The quilting is superb, with quilting around and within the piecework and in oak leaf and braided designs in the background and border, all at 8-9 stitches to the inch with faint pencil marks still visible in places. The back is white, the front and back are precisely machine stitched right at the edge ("knife edge"), and the batting is thin. You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light.
2-3 slightly different, matching blues were used and two of the corners are rounded/scalloped. The AMAZING DESIGN, NICE BLUE, and GREAT CONDITION make this early 20th century COLLECTOR'S QUILT stand out!
