From a local Lancaster County estate, here's a beauty of a vintage
Lone Star Quilt in very good condition. Delightful Autumn HARVEST shades
were used to create the design. A fabulous choice of colors, two different
shades of orange, a dark woody brown and a vivid yellow combine to make a
striking LONE STAR. Pieced and quilted by hand at 8 stitches to the inch.
The diamond piecings are beautifully matched and all outline quilted. Next
to the star design, the corners are quilted in a large spoked wheel pattern
ringed with flowers, the top, bottom and sides quilted in half-wheel and
flower quilting. Above and belwo the star is a 14" border quilted in
a vine and brick pattern. The fabrics are all cotton. The front is a pale
cream, the reverse is a darker shade of cream. There is a fine hand stitched
knife-edge binding and a light weight batting.
Size: 90" x 68"
In very good condition, no wear, no fading.
Colors are still beautiful and bright.
