Evening Stars Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania

This Evening Stars Quilt is a lovely variation of a traditional pattern. Placing one star within another and placing the red stars abutting one another creates a variety of optical illusions and additional patterns. The quilt is from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; circa 1880. It is finely quilted with several different floral patterns in the white blocks, a nice counterpoint to the geometric stars. It has been professionally laundered. There is very slight fading along part of one green edge but otherwise is in excellent condition. Measurements are 69" x 83".
