Medallion, honeycombs, stars, and greek keys on the borders. I can't imagine how difficult it was to piece and create this unbelievable pattern.
What I found so interesting about it are the radiating stars near the middle. This gives the quilt an Americana theme. The tiniest of pieces starting in the center of the star, less than finger nail size. Do take your time viewing this listing. Open our photos so you can marvel over the design and fabrics.
Measures 88 x 69 inches. Hand quilted 8 stitches per inch. Woven tape binding on the border is hand sewn. Has age spotting tanning that is scattered and worn fabrics.
Many early prints that we haven't seen before. A treasure to any fabric collector. Offered from a private collection.
